Quintessa Winery Opens New Tasting PavilionsAuthor:Lindsey Shook
With its crescent-shaped winery nestled snuggly in the St. Helena hillside, Quintessa has been Napa Valley landmark for more than 20 years. Originally designed by Walker Warner Architects, Quintessa recently returned to its roots, tapping the renowned architectural office to design a series of three new tasting pavilions.
Lucky for us, the pavilions are now open to the public by appointment.
Perched on a ridge above the original winery, each pavilion is a mini architectural wonder. Comprised of a series of floating planes and surfaces, the structures frame wine country views galore and open seamlessly to the surrounding hillsides. Materials such as wood, natural stone and concrete echo the original winery building and offer warmth and welcome.
Tastings are 90 minutes and feature a flight of Quintessa wines and a plate of local cheeses and other delicacies.
Great architecture meets great wine. Now that’s our kind of picnic.
Call 707-286-2730 to request an appointment.The wine tasting experience is $125 per guest (minimum of four persons, maximum 10 persons).
