Cooperative winery

Cellar, Modernisme
The modernist building of the cooperative winery in Gandesa was built in 1919 by architect Cèsar Martinell from Valls, a disciple of Antoni Gaudí and creator of several modernist wineries, the so-called “wine cathedrals”.

The modernist building of the Gandesa cooperative winery was built in 1919 by the Valle architect Cèsar Martinell, a disciple of Antoni Gaudí the man behind several modernist wineries known as the "wine cathedrals".

The main structure of the building is made up of three parallel rectangular naves of different heights. In them can be appreciated the most definitive elements of the architecturs of modernist wineries: The brickwork and the Catalan vaults. Furthermore, the winery originally had Nogués cermanics that disappeared buring the Civil War.

The old tubs, ramed by the slender columns, integrate wine production into the building's own architecture. Outside two water tanks supported by the roof and the green-glazed clay gargoyles stand out. Currently the modernist winery building is in the initial phase of restoration.

The cooperative winery continues to be funny operational, although vinifying activities are carried out in an adjacent building from where hundreds of thousands of litres of wine with the Gandesa de Vins brand leave from.
