Officially known as the Portuguese Republic, Portugal is the westernmost sovereign state of mainland Europe. It is one of the oldest nations on the continent, having been continuously settled since prehistoric times, and was founded as the County of Portugal in 868 AD. Portugal has a Mediterranean climate with a mixed oceanic climate along the northern half of its coastline, making it one of the warmest countries in Europe, with annual average temperatures reaching as high as 40°C and higher during the summer months. Despite its constant human settlement, Portugal is still a territory rich in biodiversity. Both mature deciduous and coniferous forests can be found in areas, and an extremely rare worldwide mature Mediterranean forest remains in some parts of the Arrábida mountains. Portugal is home to wild species of boar, Iberian red deer, roe deer, and the Iberian wild goat.
QUINTA DO MONTE D’OIRO
Quinta Do Monte D’Oiro is a family wine project located in the Lisbon Wine Region of Portugal which has been known for its idyllic wine-making conditions since the 17th century.
The project is the dream of renowned gastronomist José Bento dos Santos. Since the first harvest in 1997, Quinta do Monte d’Oiro wines have been consistently awarded with countless prizes and achievements in Portugal and around the globe.
The vineyard itself is 100% certified organic and all the operations aim at very low yield production, using the best French oak barrels for wine ageing.
Quinta do Monte d’Oiro wines are present in several international markets, such as France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, USA, Canada, Brazil, Angola, China and Taiwan.
The tasting room will function as a space for guests to meet and sample wines from the vineyard while at the same time sampling the stunning natural views. The space should be open and inviting, and will need to include a table around which visitors can gather. There will need to be simple amenities such as running water and a few cabinets for storage. The most important feature should be the view, so the inclusion of large windows, or even an entire glass wall, is vital.
The tasting room will need to be operational throughout the year and so should be comfortable during all seasons; keeping guests cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The tasting room should be approximately 60 m2 and it should be able to accommodate roughly 30 people seated around a unique table.
The use of natural materials is recommended, ensuring that the new tasting room blends in naturally with the surrounding environment.
The competition site is located at the corner of the winery, overlooking the vineyard.
