Located in Dundee, Oregon in the heart of Oregon Wine Country, this 12,000 sf former vitamin factory off Hwy 99 was transformed into a state of the art communal natural winemaking facility and tasting room for Day Wines and 10 other winemakers.
The design of the architecture and landscape and the materials selected are a reflection of the owner and natural winemaker, Brianne Day. Moving from the gravel parking lot to the winery, a covered loggia and vertical cedar screen, whose design is based on an unfolded wine barrel, enclose a courtyard and create a serene gathering space. The linearity of the architecture and landscape were inspired by vineyard planting, and carry from the courtyard into the cedar clad tasting room. An organically shaped copper clad tasting bar greet visitor’s and large floor to ceiling sliding glass doors stack to flood the space with natural light while allowing the interior to flow seamlessly to the courtyard.
