Dominus Winery

Location: Yountville, California

Project Team: Herzog & deMeuron Architects

Sq. Footage: 50000

Completed in 1998, Dominus Winery was the first American work designed by Herzog & De Meuron Architects who partnered with Valley Architects of St. Helena.  This unique project involved hundreds of gabion baskets filled with local field stone, hand stacked- to form the skin of the building which allows natural light to filter into the interior spaces. Difficult to describe with words, this building pushes the design and construction horizon and is sure to capture your imagination.
