Williams Selyem Winery

Solar panels provide much of the winery’s power and hot water needs.

Williams Selyem Winery desired a more functional winery befitting their prized Pinot Noir. Architect Alex Ceppi with the New York-based D.arc Group LLC designed this unique and technologically advanced facility for offices, winemaking and wine club events. Notable sustainable features of the 28,000 sf winery include a green roof of native grasses, solar PV system, as well as a solar thermal system used to heat water for cleaning barrels, tanks, equipment and floors, and sterilizing wine bottles. Preserving heritage oaks further demonstrates the owner’s and design and construction team’s dedication to sustainability.

Named 2010 Top Real Estate Project – Winery category – by the North Bay Business Journal.
