The Ehlers Estate project encompasses 6,000 square feet of production and barrel storage facilities that support an historic stone building housing a tasting room and offices. With the production facility located directly behind the tasting room, visitors are able to view the heart of the fermentation area and vineyards beyond. Prefabricated structural systems simple in form, material, and massing, the design of the facilities takes its cue from the original winery and other agricultural buildings common to Napa Valley. The result is a utilitarian yet striking set of buildings that exist to serve its iconic predecessor.
