The winery building is the first phase of a group of buildings designed to serve the winemaking and marketing operations of this new vineyard. In due course, further storage, a house for the owner and a hospitality barn will be added as the first wines reach maturity. The winery has been awarded the Chilterns Society Building of the Year.
The entrances to the building are covered by a generous sunny loggia while the vernacular building forms shelter a state-of-the-art wine making facility. Visitors will be able to tour the production area with its 4 tonne presses and 6m high fermentation tanks, sample the wines in the tasting lounge and visit the cellars below. A kitchen on the first floor will be used for hospitality and serve the tasting events. It has a three sided dormer with views over the northern vineyard.
