Drinking a glass of wine in a simple room is not the same experience as sipping exact one under a canopy of stars. What defines the taste of any wine is the when and where you are sipping it.

The practice of making these structures to lure in possible customers have been started by newer wine industries belonging to Chile and Argentina and several states like Michigan in the United States for the American continent. In Europe, New Zealand and Austria have these rooms to lure in buyers. These architecturally elegant and scenery centered rooms invites the tasters to focus on their senses and the taste the wines provide.

Construction is now underway for the highest building ever to be built in Austria.

In a ceremony early this month, André Gerondeau of hotel brand Sol Meliá along with Vienna City Mayor Michael Häupl, formally set the initial cornerstone for what will rise to be the DC Tower 1, or Austria’s highest building, to signal the beginning of its assembly.

The hotel, which was originally scheduled on 2007, is set to be built in Donau City, which is home to other high-rises such as the Mischek and Ares Tower. It is intended to stand 220 meters high—taller than the buildings in the area; and even surpassing Vienna’s Millennium Tower which is the present tallest building in Austria at 202 meters.

Dominique Perrault, world-renowned architect who hails from France, is the man behind the building’s design. Perrault’s vision for the tower’s façade—glass that resembles cut crystal.
