Special Award For San Simone Winery At Gusto Cortina: Cellar of Prometheus

San Simone winery, present at the event “Gusto Cortina” (16-17 June) in Cortina, a show dedicated to the excellence
of Italian wines and food, was rewarded on the occasion of the architectural competition "The Cellar of Prometheus"
to gratify the most significant architectural winery for the ability to integrate architecture, efficiency and landscape.
Amongst the best wineries the jury crowned, for the section "Landscape", San Simone Winery of Brisotto family projected by Arch. M. A. Redigonda (example of perfect integration within the lines of the landscape), in addition to the Castelbuono Winery in Montefalco by Lunelli, the famous "Carapace" signed by the artist Arnaldo Pomodoro and the Winery of Poggio San Polo in Montalcino. There was a special mention to Cortina d'Ampezzo 1350, a vine that bears witness to the courage of an extreme integration of nature artificialis with naturalis.
"The winners and their product - said Prof. Arch. A. Restucci, Chancellor of Venice University of Architecture IUAV and head of the jury – are the outcome of a working capacity of entrepreneurs in the wine sector that are behind it, i.e. those who have managed to establish vineyards keeping in mind the landscape and the wineries are the casing which gives body to this entrepreneurial effort, social and cultural".
Arch. Redigonda commented on the result, expressing maximum satisfaction: "as planner I kept in mind the producer requirements, of functionality and efficiency while respecting the environment, making sure that the distribution system would fit in architectural features".
"In addition to satisfaction, this award is a source of pride because the winery was constructed almost 20 years ago,
when there was not so much attention given to the landscape - says Anna Brisotto, at the helm of the company together with her siblings Antonio and Chiara. Our wine cellar is none other than the testimony of set of principles that our parents have always firmly pursued, to whom we dedicate the prize: maximum respect of the community, surrounding nature and local cultural heritage ".
