And here is Ellen Crosby on the left autographing books for customers.
Which do you like most: the wine, the mountain view from the patio or that cute little Pug dog?
Lots of land for exploring, picnicing or for using as a photo backdrop.
As you can see from this photo this winery building is completely contemporary in both design and function. And it is big. Two stories to explore and to enjoy the views of the mountains to the west.
I shot this photo from upstairs looking down over the large seating and shopping area. Notice the old wood. I think it is a mix of recycled old white pine from torn down homes and barns. I like the idea of using old things in new exciting ways. I also like the russet reds, sunflower yellows and blacks used in the color palette. (Hmmm....maybe I like it because those are the colors in my home.)
This is a view of part of the huge wine tasting bar. The base is wood with supports made of staves from old recycled wine barrels and the top is wrapped in sheets of stainless steel that Brian Roeder has personally sanded with a sander to create a rather unique circle design in the steel.
I took this photo from the parking lot. It was a warm weekend a couple of weeks ago and many folks took advantage of the nice weather to plan a winery outing to enjoy both the nice tasting wine and the views of the mountains and valleys. This winery has a little rock stage for entertaining folks with singers and bands.
