McLaren Vale’s d’Arenberg Cube has been awarded yet another accolade, this time recognised internationally for its unique design.
d’Arenberg won the 2019 international Best of Wine Tourism Award for Architecture and Landscape, recognised for its bespoke structure and design.
The Cube was designed by winemaker Chester Osborn, with an exterior made entirely of glass, combined with a complex pattern adorning the façade.
Managed by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, the awards program recognises leadership, innovation and excellence in wine tourism, across the 10 key wine regions in the world: San Francisco/Napa Valley (US), Bordeaux (France), Bilbao/Rioja (Spain), Lausanne (Switzerland), Mainz/Rheinhessen (Germany), Mendoza (Argentina), Porto (Portugal), Valparaìso/Casablanca Valley (Chile), and Verona (Italy) and of course Adelaide (Australia).
