The project is located within ‘Casa de la Tercia’ building, constructed in the 7th century in Cehegin, Murcia. It reorganized the space which previously included a presentation area in the courtyard from where liquids flowed into wine jars positioned to ensure cool temperatures. The expanse where the jars were stored was converted into a gallery, with a transparent glass walkway and ramp. Visitors can read passages and illustrations taken from the book of native sommelier Pedro Martinez.

The project also includes a wine shop, a kitchen where visitors can take cooking classes, and another space at the far end of the cellar for lectures and concerts. Raw steel and naturally-weathered materials dominate the interior. The architects made sure to preserve the most valuable parts of the interior.
