Top 10 wine feuds of 2013

10. Ysios sues Calatrava over dodgy roof

Pretty but impractical: the roof of Bodegas Ysios can't keep the rain out

In April Bodegas Ysios in Rioja announced it was suing world renowned architect Santiago Calatrava for €2m over problems with an “undulating” roof he designed for the firm in 2001.

While the silver roof mirrors pleasantly reflected the mountainous landscape of Rioja Alavesa behind the winery, Bodegas Ysios claimed the clever design was unable to keep the wind and rain out.

The winery’s owner, Domecq Bodegas, said the building had “seriously deteriorated” in the 12 years since it opened, with temperature changes causing fixtures to tear and aluminium parts coming loose in strong winds.
