Bodega y Viñedos O. Fournier
aims to build a winery equipped with the latest technology. It
will have a capacity of 600,000 litres in stainless steel, oak
and cement vats, ranging from 6,500 to 25,000 litres in capacity.
The new winery has been designed to work with gravity to minimise
the use of pumps.
The underground cellar will be able to hold up to 2,800 oak barrels
at a constant temperature and humidity. In light of the company´s
commitment to continuously improve its wines, it has plans for
the development of an innovative laboratory with microvinification
capabilities. A small hotel and restaurant will also be built
near the winery to accommodate visitors. The total investment
of the project is eight million dollars, of which four million
have already been invested.
