Lahofer Winery, founded in 2003 in the town of Znojmo, today boasts more than 430 hectares of vineyards and produce about 800,000 bottles of wine annually, which makes this one of the largest wine‑growers in the Czech Republic. Lahofer’s multifaceted wine complex offers guests a visitor centre, a tasting hall, and an amphitheatre – tactically situated on the roof of the building. The winery uses architectural elements designed for sensitive integration into the surrounding Moravian landscape – the colonnade of arches follows the rows of vines, and the slope of the amphitheatre mirrors the surrounding slopes.
Lunawood Thermowood was selected to the project from various material options. Due to its versatility, aesthetics and physical feel it was a perfect choice for this phenomenal project. Chemical free and dimensionally stable Luna SHP 19×92 Facade and Luna SHP 26×117 Decking stands the test of time and gives the soothing effect of Nordic forest for the people in Lahofer Winery.
