4 Tasting Room Design Ideas for Winery Construction Projects

Consider these Tasting Room and Hospitality Designs to Make Your Winery Construction Project Stand Out

The northern region of California is synonymous with fine wine and Sonoma and Napa counties lead the way as a premier destination for some of the most sought-after winery experiences in the world. Winemakers put an extraordinary amount of care into the wines they make, and this fervor is reflected in their establishments as well. Creating a uniquely memorable space for wine connoisseurs to sample varietals is an important step in establishing a winery’s legacy. Visitors travel from all over the world to sample wines throughout the Sonoma and Napa Valley wine regions, so it’s important to deliver an experience as exquisite as the wine. The following are some of our favorite tasting rooms and hospitality spaces that truly elevate the guest experience.

1.   Murrieta’s Well Winery: Creating an Unforgettable Event Venue while Preserving a Historical Landmark

Murrieta’s Well Winery in Livermore dates back to the 1800s and is one of California’s original gravity flow wine estates. The tasteful renovation of Murrieta’s Well highlights the rich history and charm of its past while providing an enchanting setting for special events of the present.

The new terrace, outdoor patios, and sculpted landscaping, frame the historical landmark and provide an inviting space that seamlessly accentuates the timeless estate. Interior renovations included removal of the second floor offices to create space for additional hospitality rooms, tastings bars, and even a bridal suite. The mix of historical architecture with a touch of modern flare creates an ambiance that is simply unforgettable.

2.   The Prisoner Wine Company: A Tasting Room Designed to Break the Norm

Titus Vineyards’ tasting room in St. Helena, CA highlights the beautiful scenery and grounds of its vineyard estate.

The winery’s views are emphasized by the construction and design of the tasting room. With elegant sliding glass doors, abundant natural light, and wood slatted walls and ceilings one’s eyes are drawn to the outside. Titus Vineyards’ clean design flawlessly integrates the beautiful landscape into the winery experience. The full panoramic views of the valley is the epitome of this stunning tasting room.
