Eco-friendly designer and architect Michael Janzten has released his Solar Vineyard Winery blueprints, an undertaking aiming to create sustainable wine enterprises. Jantzen’s work is different from a handful of other ecological projects in that it serves both aesthetic and business purposes.

The Solar Vineyard Winery generates energy via winding photo-voltaic solar cells. As the structure is curved, it provides a shaded space below. According to Jantzen, this space can be used for a variety of tourist activities, including special events and wine tastings. At night, these events can be lit up by the energy created by the solar cells, or heated during the winter. This feature of the design renders the project to be particularly business-minded, and this feature has been integral to the undertaking’s retail value. Aesthetically, the bended shape of the Solar Vineyard Winery is intended to emulate the rows of grapes lining the fields.

For the sightseer in search of an ornate business-savvy vintner, Jantzen’s Solar Vineyard Winery is the most optimal framework.
