Since 2009, Baniewice, some 50 kilometers south of the Polish city of Stettin, has not only been growing rapeseed, wheat and barley, but also producing wine. The Winnica Turnau winery building dates back to the late 19th century and was extensively restored using Brillux products. In addition to processing wine, the premises are also used as a cultural center, a venue for concerts and exhibitions. The heart of the winery is the historic brick farmhouse that has been converted into a wine tavern and an art center. The original brick was used during reconstruction to retain the authentic look.

To protect the bricks from water absorption, efflorescence, premature soiling as well as algae and fungal infestation, they had to be carefully impregnated before being reused. To do so, each stone was dipped into an existing bath filled with water and Hydro Facade Impregnating Agent 512 in a 9:1 ratio. The ceilings and walls were also coated using Brillux products.

Wine production exposes the walls and ceilings to higher levels of moisture. That's why Brillux Profisil 1906 was the perfect choice here. Due to its high alkalinity, the silicate emulsion paint not only offers natural protection against mold, but also allows water vapor to pass through, which can be absorbed from the substrate. In the area for wine tasting, concerts, and exhibitions, the walls and ceilings of the premises were coated with Superlux ELF 3000. The high-quality interior emulsion paint offers good coverage, a long application time and is ideally suited for larger, contiguous surfaces with critical light conditions, such as grazing light.
