Wallpaper - - Wine & Design -

The d’aren­berg Cube, a five-storey vis­i­tor cen­tre, cel­lar door and restau­rant, rises like an out­sized Ru­bik’s Cube from a vine­yard in South Aus­tralia’s Mclaren Vale, and has been a long-held dream for chief wine­maker Ch­ester Os­born. ‘I built the model for this 14 years ago,’ he says. ‘It looks ex­actly the same, ex­cept the model was half a me­tre tall, in a tiny vine­yard with lit­tle sol­diers…i wanted to use an iconic puz­zle, be­cause wine is such a puz­zle to work out.’ Don’t ex­pect a standard cel­lar door ex­pe­ri­ence from the Cube, cre­ated with Nic Sal­vati of ADS Architects. ‘There will be a lot of in­ter­ac­tive wine ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing full sur­round video, aug­mented re­al­ity and aroma con­tain­ers to play around with,’ says Os­born.
