Hundertwasser's comment on the work

The building is completely overgrown with nature so people can wander and walk upon all parts of the roof. A multiplication of nature as an answer to urban distruction.(from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 1294)

This winery is another demonstration of the fact that production facilities can be built in harmony with nature. The building is integrated into its natural surroundings and seems to have grown up out of the landscape. Everything that was taken from nature during the construction of the building has been returned to it on the building's roof.
