Construction of new winery nestled into a hillside for maximum temperature control. The structure consists of large concrete retaining walls topped by wood frame construction with exposed radius glu-lam beams and insulated roof panels. Mezzanine construction is concrete over metal decking and structural steel framing. Metal elements are coated with special coatings to resist sulpherous acid, a natural by-product of the wine-making process. The project includes a self-contained fire-protection system, stainless steel tanks, glycol piping, and custom sliding barn doors completed by McNely Construction Company carpenters. Stained concrete floors and exposed roof trusses in the tasting room/visitor’s center gives the feeling that the building has been there for many years prior to the actual construction.

"I know that the project is, well, a little out of the ordinary, and that I too am perhaps not your “normal” client. But I do still feel that your team is the absolute right one to do the job, and you have the skill – integrity – responsibility to execute, and I especially appreciate that you have gone beyond the course of “normal” business to work for this project. I am looking forward to working with you all, and … seeing you all flying in the tunnel next summer!"
