This new Hospitality Centre at Phantom Creek Winery was built upon the foundations of a facility partially started by the previous owners. Our client added significant size and scope to accommodate increased production and visitor capacity. Designed by noted winery architect John Taft of Napa, California, the building takes advantage of the varied elevation levels surrounding it, creating a four-level winery that blends into its landscape. This is most apparent in the hidden production and cellar rooms that harness the lower underground temperatures.
The winery was designed and built for efficiency and to maximize wine production. The loading and receiving areas easily transition to crusher and fermentation tanks and once the grapes are ready, transportation to the production and barrel facilities is seamless. The winery features administrative offices, a retail area and history room, public and private tasting rooms, a restaurant with a large patio, a large wine production facility and three barrel fermentation cellars. A terraced 526-seat amphitheatre slopes down from the patio area, providing panoramic views of the valley.
