Amazing architecture in the winery brain

Winegrowers definitely value a beautiful architecture in the winery. This allows them to present their wines in a special way. They usually do this in old estates whose courtyards are decorated with vines. They operate in it hedge farms. There wine lovers can enjoy a fourth wine in the shade of grapevines. Or they choose modern wine architecture from materials of the terroir. This reflects the region where the winemaker's wines thrive. In the winery brain in Untereisenheim am Main, however, the owner of the winery hit other paths.

The winery brain of Untereisenheim

The architecture in the winery brain is certainly reason for many guests, why they visit this winery on the outskirts of the village Untereisenheim. A note in a guide led us anyway to this winery in Untereisenheim. For his winery Matthias brain was inspired by none other than Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The architecture lover Brain became aware of the star architects from Austria by accident. In a bookstore he came across a book about the artist's architecture. From then on it was clear to him that his new estate building should be built in the style of a star architect.

However, the house is not one of the Hunderwasser buildings. This told us the Hundertwasser Foundation in Vienna With. Hundertwasser died in 2000 on board the Queen Elizabeth 2 off Brisbane in Australia. Architect Springmann had completed several buildings together with Friedensreich Hundertwasser. He finally completed the construction in the year 2001. Two years later, the winery brain opened its doors to the public. Worth seeing is the winery anyway.

Architecture in the winery brain as an attraction

We wanted the winery brain on our Motorhome trip through the Franconian wine country look at. Already as we approach the place from Wipfeld, we see the striking winery on the outskirts. Its colorful facades without straight lines cannot be overlooked. It looks a bit like a building from a fantasy film. A Franconian “Villa Kunterbunt”, so to speak.

When we stand in front of it, we see that the topic of "wine" has been integrated into the building in a very special way. In the outer wall of the building, goat bags and wine bottles are walled in. Under an archway we come to a garden whose sculptures, ponds and plants are in no way inferior to the shape of the building. Fantasy heads, sticks and fantasy structures adorn the garden, which makes it as astounding as the building itself. Winery Hirn describes his manor as a "wine paradise". We are right to think so, albeit in an unusual way. Let yourself be carried away into the world of the Hirn winery.

Although this is not a building by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the building is worth seeing. It stands out from the usual in this region wineries with its colorful and imaginative facade. However, we can not tell you how the wines from the house of Brain taste. Since a bus group was our guest, we decided not to visit the hedge business and continued our journey to our next destination.

    Thanks for the great story, Monika and Petar!

    So far I have only seen the Hundertwasser House in Vienna and a small building in the Gruga Park in Essen. The winery looks beautiful, and I hope to visit it sometime in the future!

    Best regards,
    N.

      We are happy if you like it. Strictly speaking, it is not a Hundertwasser house, but even the locals call it as such: D

      Best regards,
      Monika

      That sounds seductive, Antje. We did not have time for a longer stay. But maybe it will work out another time.

    Wonderful blog. Turn Hundertwasser into wine. That's a good idea. Greetings Andreas
