Vine Cliff Winery
Tasting Room

Hand-forged front gates lend an inviting, Old World feel.

This winery’s tasting room has classic touches, incorporated into the contemporary building. The Old World feel is seen in hand-forged front gates, steel windows, and wine cabinetry of stained elderberry wood. The 4,000 sf building has 17-inch thick walls, emphasized in the architecture and providing superior insulation. Concrete stone plaster and wood are used throughout, with concrete counters and fireplace. Solar energy provides 60% of the power, an offset to the winery‚Äôs carbon footprint.
