Construction goals

Utilize the hillside location and build a 17,000 sq ft site sensitive, multi level gravity flow winery facility, and adjoin it to the current tasting room.  Three story steel columns were integrated with gang-formed concrete walls and connected, with precise alignment, to exposed glulam beams.  

The adjoining tasting room was open daily for business, presenting additional challenges to construction without jeopardizing the safety and enjoyment of visiting customers.

Construction couldn’t start until the winter of 2011, yet the owner challenged the team to complete the building in time for the 2012 crush.  A project of this size and scope would normally require 15 months to complete.  Thanks to extraordinary cooperation, among the multiple trades, the owner’s request was achieved.  We succeeded in having wine produced in the new facility in just under 8 months - a unique testament to our company's skills.
