Set high into a hilltop with panoramic views of Napa Valley, San Francisco Bay, and its own estate vineyards, it’s easy to see why Artesa is called the Jewel of Carneros. Perhaps no other winery captures the multi-faceted beauty of this windswept, world-famous appellation as dramatically as the Artesa estate, where the fusion of architecture, artistry and winegrowing reaches soaring heights.
The impressive underground facility is the epitome of environmentally conscionable design and construction. The winery’s unique architecture includes prismatic windows, cascading waterfalls, and the creation of man-made lakes. Extensive precast and cast-in-place concrete techniques were employed in the construction of the facility. A large deck made out of precast supports 1.5 feet of fill for grass and various architectural water features. Below is the storage facility for finished product. The first of many column, beam, and hollow core plank storage facilities in the wine country.
