Inside only shows an old stone wall on the old walls. The challenge was to provide sufficient exposure in the completely rebuilt inner city area. Thus, a circular window was cut out of the old fire brigade gate to the street side. The circular cut-out is also taken up as a design element in the entire room: in the wall sections for the wine presentation, in the seat integrated in the wall covering, in the new entrance area clad in Corten steel on the outside and in all wall transitions to the ceiling and floor.
This is how a modern tasting room was created, which consciously emphasizes its time of origin by means of the trendy retro look, but does not stop there, but rather expects to be regarded as an equally ambitious and appropriate solution for many years to come. »The customers are very impressed and feel very well in the vinotheque,« Georg Julius concludes a good year after the reopening. In 2010, the project was awarded the Architecture Prize for Wine by the Chamber of Architects Rhineland-Palatinate, the Ministry of Economic Affairs Rhineland-Palatinate and the German Winegrowing Association.
