Nero Marquina

The focal point of this cellar is a fourteen-foot wine sculpture titled Vitis, 2018. It projects light through photography and 747 linear feet of handblown borosilicate glass ampules that have been hermetically sealed with Sauternes wines from different decades. The different ages of wines provide a progression of colour from top to bottom. The walls are suede, the floors are leather and the marble is Nero Marquina. The herringbone wall was crafted out of Macassar and then finished with laser-cut mirror finished brass strips. To access the bottles in the top portion, a hidden suede-lined drawbridge lowers from the wall to create an extended catwalk. The ceiling is a reflective black material that creates the illusion of a twenty-eight-foot wine sculpture.
