This week we had the opportunity to visit the Ribas winery in Mallorca and see how the new cellar opened in August 2019 looks. A reform signed by none other than Rafael Moneo, an architect known for having been awarded some of the most important prizes in the world, such as the Pritzker Prize in 1996 and the Mies van der Rohe Prize in 2001. His works include, for example, the transformation of the Villahermosa Palace to house the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the extension of the Bank of Spain, the Prado Museum and the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation.

What we found most interesting was how they respected the historical space and the way they integrated nature, as well as the fact that they did not cut down a single cypress tree from those surrounding the building. In short, they have managed to impeccably combine tradition and contemporaneity.

It only remains for us to congratulate Rafael Moneo and his project managers, Clara Moneo and Valerio Canal, as well as one of our sponsors Man for the fantastic execution of the construction. Finally, we would like to congratulate Maria Antonia Ribas and her sons Javier and Araceli Servera Ribas, not only for the reform, but also for continuing in an impeccable way what one day Pedro Ribas de Cabrera started. From here we encourage you to live the experience in first person, without a doubt it is worth visiting the winery!
