Located in Bernal in the state of Querétaro in Mexico Donato is a vineyard that stands outs for offering its visitors an experience that goes beyond the local market. Its privileged location —an hour and a half from Mexico City— gives it a very attractive advantage that is triggering an interest in everything happening in developing area.
The project made for Donato is a complex that, in addition to the vineyard, includes an event hall for 850 people, a gourmet shop, two restaurants, and a cellar for visitors and a special one for the family. Throughout the project you can enjoy magnificent views of Peña de Bernal, this iconic rock landmark surrounded by vines and its kaleidoscope of colors and textures throughout the year.
It was very important for the client to maintain the area´s traditional architecture in the whole complex’s hull and to season the spaces with wide open terraces, galleries with large arches, stone walls and ceilings with brick vaults that surround the visitor with region´s savoir-faire.
DIN interiorismo´s team sought for the interior design project to be the right contemporary contrast to achieve a timeless environment that will be transformed according to the needs given over time and simultaneously be the basis that gives functionality and its own character to each space and the activities happening inside them.
Wood is one of the main materials shaping the display furniture and wine cellars and in combination with white walls and burgundy color emphasizes the winemaking tradition that always seeks to maintain the link with the rustic environment that characterizes it. In the event hall the plafond is the element that gives dynamism to the space and at the same time receives the lighting system to create all the necessary scenes for a XXI century event.
At Donato the exterior, interior and the subsoil invite the visitors to cover every nook and cranny with the certainty that there is not an inch where they will not feel identified with its oenology vocation. The work of Aurelio Vázquez and his team attained that the different uses and services may operate under the driving force of the interior design that they created for this life experience dedicated to the enjoyment of wine and the experiences revolving around it.
