WINERY of RECYCLED BOATS: Vena Cava winery in Guadalupe Valley, Mexico is one of a growing number of wineries that’s designed to give visitors a memorable visual experience — not just a taste of fine wine. The Economist are calling Guadalupe Valley the “Napa of Mexico.”
- The vaulted ceilings of Vena Cava are made out of salvaged discarded boats from a nearby port. Some of the walls are decorated with discarded lenses from a local eyeglass factory.
- Materials come from local factories, junkyards and demolition sites. Old glass bottles are great for insulation. A corked glass bottle isn’t too different from a double-paned window.
- And it’s not about being rich or poor. It’s about getting the most out of what you already have.
