The building has an angular geometry with 83.0m long and 15.0m wide, forming a single building block, without any joint.
In altimetry terms the winery is developed in four distinct levels, including the cover. The ground floor cumprisses mainly the production area, storage compartments and service support, while the first floor is for the administrative area.
In the second floor is where the process of wine production starts once is the accessing the area where the trucks / tractors loaded with raw materials still in the rough.
Regarding the surrounding ground and topography, were provided accesses on several fronts and at different levels.
