Woollaston Estate Winery

As both a UN environmental official and New Zealand Member of Parliament, Philip Woollaston was particularly concerned that his new winery development exemplified good stewardship of the land. After visiting some of our projects in Oregon, he asked us to develop one of New Zealand’s first gravity flow facilities. Accommodating up to 200 guests, the complex is nestled discreetly into its hillside site and features an energy-efficient earth sheltered roof.
