Ink Grade Tasting Room

Location: St. Helena, CA

Project Architect(s): Architectural Resources Group

The Ink Grade tasting room brings the history and fullness of the storied Howell Mountain Estate to the Valley Floor. The unassuming entry gives way series of finely tuned tasting experiences. The focal point of the main tasting space is a giant boulder harvested from the Ink Grade Estate which we fitted with a beautiful wood top and serves as a gathering space for arrivals and departures. The diversity of tasting experiences is highlighted by The Senses Room which is a black box tasting experience with 360 projection that brings the visitor into the vineyards as they taste through the wine offerings. Outdoor tastings are punctuated by a beautiful Pizza oven and finely appointed landscaping. All interior spaces were renovated and elevated to meet the beauty and charter of the Ink Grade brand.
