Occupying the arches in Borough Market on London’s Southbank, Vinopolis wine experience is a 28,000sqft wine tour, showcasing over 200 of the worlds finest wines. First opening its doors in July 1999, Vinopolis has become a favourite for day trippers and wine connoisseurs alike.
After 13 years the original wine tour had become tired and in need of modernisation. Although the wine industry is very much steeped in tradition the process of making wine has been modernised and made more efficient, which was exactly what Vinopolis wanted for its wine experience.
Working with the management and experienced wine experts, we introduced interactive technology designed to enhance learning and experience of different wines from around the world, allowing visitors to discover new flavours and develop their personal taste profiles. Wine is now dispensed from enomatic wine coolers which are activated via a card system.
The space includes a large reception and bar with a central bespoke oak slatted light feature, an auditorium and blending rooms with interactive games and video content. In the large brick arches at either end we created giant fabric bottle pods with internal lighting effects to enhance the existing structure as much as possible.
We also of course, were fortunate enough to taste a few of the wines on offer…
