VIANSA SONOMA WINERY
Located in the Carneros region of Sonoma, this terracotta and tile hilltop winery embodies the spirit of northern Italy. Overlooking natural wetlands that have been restored by Viansa, the winery is organized in the tradition of a Tuscan farmstead. With a cluster of buildings encircling a common courtyard, views extend to both the Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
Visiting tours are led through an underground winemaking cellar to the 3,500 square foot beamed and frescoed tasting room above, where traditional Italian food is paired with Viansa wines. The master plan includes a large dining pavilion and Italian demonstration kitchen, offices, a private dining cellar, and caves. A BCV Principal served as Lead Designer for this project while employed at BAR Architects.
