Abstract: In addition to offering the possibility of rational wine production, contemporary wineries also contribute to preservation of its prestige in society, by their form and materialization. The terrain is an important influential factor in designing of wineries. The paper examines the way in which terrain characteristics affect the functional disposition of facilities and winery visualization. This is illustrated by schemes, photos and comparative analysis of the examples. The results show that the flow of technological process and cost-effectiveness of production are directly related to terrain configuration, as well as, that its significance in terms of connection with nature is often emphasized by the integration of winery into environment and creation of sustainable buildings that meet the needs of the modern age.

Key words: wine production, technological process, terrain configuration, functional disposition, winery design.
