Flowers Vineyards & Winery was looking for a venue to showcase their sustainably produced wines within a setting that expressed their nature-based ethos.
After securing an estate in Healdsburg with a deteriorated winery, a complete renovation and expansion became the perfect union of context and intent. Previously a warehouse with modest wine tasting facilities, remodeling the existing structures rather than building anew aligned with Flowers’ commitment to sustainability.
The challenge was how to evolve the existing collection of facilities with minimal intervention while ensuring that the venue could become a destination in its own right. The approach, which enabled most of the original structure to be “recycled,” gave focus to the design efforts, elevating what was already present.
