“Let’s think big. Outside the box. Crazy. But close to the product.” “How are you going to do that? Do you want to sleep in the cava bottle?” (*Wicky Nose Rub Memory Pause)
“Would just ne’ size larger .”
I don’t know how the design slash architecture team at Hotel Mastinell came up with the concept, but it must have been a really amusing PowerPoint presentation. Or a few bottles of Cava after work. But who cares? But I think it’s really cool.
Looking over the proverbial rim of the bottle couldn’t be more beautiful than in the design hotel. Because the said rim is your window there. And your rooms are located in a replica champagne bottle. The Mastinell in Vilafranca del Penedès is located in the famous Cava region. And because everything revolves around sparkling wine, the innovative architecture follows suit.
The result is an oversized wine rack with stacked cava bottles. In the package: 13 rooms, a restaurant, wine cellar, terrace, gardens and, safe, pool.
Hotel Mastinell: heart beats for Cava
There are 159 municipalities that are allowed to produce Catalan sparkling specialty cava. About 95% of all cavas are produced in the D.O. Penedès produced. Prerequisite: the wine must age on its lees for at least nine monthsand be sold at the earliest one year after the harvest. In addition, only the selected white grape varieties Viura, Xarello and Paellada are allowed for production.
Unfortunately, the fancy hotspot is geared a bit too much to Barcelona light figure Messi, and the transfer fee is not necessarily spectator-friendly.
Enter the XXL wine rack. But who wants to get out again?
Spaceship architecture, down-to-earth pool: wine-loving mix.
