      Description

      Celebrate the sophisticated blend of agriculture and style that defines California wine country.

      With well-told stories and stunning photography, author Heather Hebert features the architecture of 25 California wineries in her alluring new book, The New Architecture of Wine.

      As wine tourism has increased, California vintners have embraced the call to create splendid spaces where visitors can taste their unique varieties and enjoyconversation about wine. In place of imitating old-world European estates, grand architectural statements or quirky forays into bohemianism, the new architecture of wine has evolved into a celebration of California’s topography, agricultural heritage, historic architectural vernacular, and forward-thinking passion for sustainability and design.

      The 25 wineries featured in The New Architecture of Wine, all built within the last ten years, include buildings designed by top architects Juan Carlos Fernandez and Howard Backen, among others. Together, these wineries form an authentic expression of the winemakers’ passion for the land and its heritage—an homage to California.

      Bio

She works directly with clients to develop their brand strategy and design stories for their hotel, resort, winery, multi-family residential and urban mixed-use projects. Heather lives in Marin County, California, with her husband and four children. The New Architecture of Wine is her first book.
