When Cakebread Cellars expanded their renowned Napa Valley winery, adding a new visitor’s center with nine new tasting rooms, office space and a new production area, they chose a stunning wood-centric design to celebrate the winery’s rich history. The design team made innovative use of heavy timber and light wood framing in their new hospitality and production areas, creating a modern tasting experience for guests and seamlessly integrating the new facilities with existing buildings on the property. Glulam beams frame the grand entry, setting the stage with a stunning yet peaceful and serene atmosphere. Inside, custom wood light fixtures provide a natural, dramatic focal point, highlighting the wood walls and ceiling. Wood also features prominently in the tasting rooms, creating an atmosphere that is both sophisticated and welcoming. Finally, glulam beams and wood decking frame the expansive production area, so the view into the work area matches the rest of the winery’s luxe aesthetic.
