J. Christopher Winery and Tasting Room
This multi-phased project began with the design of five, earth-sheltered cellars arrayed radially from a central work space. The cellars were built with pre-cast concrete barrel vaults using the “cut and cover” technique. The second phase included an elevated crush pad, separate red and white fermentation rooms, and a lab. The exterior walls are constructed of insulated tilt-up concrete panels. Both the tilt-ups and pre-cast vaults feature integrally colored concrete. The third phase, recently completed, includes offices, a tasting room, and large terrace.
