California Central Valley Winery

Nestled into vineyards in California’s Central Valley, this winery features simple agrarian metal building forms with complementary wood buildings and loggia structures.

With the building’s visibility from a nearby highway, the elemental architectural forms serve as a landmark for the Winery. The design accentuates western views to a prominent land form that connects to Napa Valley just over the mountains.

Project master planning calls for multiple construction phases with the first phase to include the tasting rooms and production facilities. Additional phases allow for production expansion and a community gathering hall and event center.

The entry plaza and tasting room floors are elevated above the surrounding grape vines, affording commanding views to the west. This strengthens the Winery’s connection to the surrounding vineyards and nature. A shaded loggia planted with vines provides ample comfortable exterior gathering space in the hot climate of central California. The design controls these local climate extremes through the use of solar shading, wind screens, and landscape buffers. The building features include well-insulated energy conserving walls along with translucent insulated clerestory windows to naturally daylight production areas.
