This photo was taken on the ground floor of Quintessa Winery in Napa Valley. Quintessa has spent millions of dollars building a state of the art winery and they spent as much time and money on the architecture as they did on the wine making equipment. It reminds me a little bit of Opus One’s winery. To some winemakers it is probably overbearing and self indulgent but it is something beautiful to see. Their wines are pretty good as well. If you ever get a chance to take a tour of the winery and vineyards they have a lovely lake and island up in back behind the winery. I attended a picnic on this lake once which was quite nice.
