Duckhorn purchased the Hopland facility in 2013 to accommodate the production and storage of its larger-production wines. The 43,000 square-foot addition was a pre-engineered structure that allowed the winery to expand its barrel storage footprint.

Over a period of several decades, there had been multiple additions to the building, including several prior: tank expansions, crush pad modifications & office updates. The goal for the most recent expansion was to accommodate more barrel storage, while maintaining the flow of winemaking, tying systems together from one building to another.

A deep understanding of the winemaking process, close working relationships with subcontractors and a long-standing working relationship with the client allowed Nordby to meet the client’s goals efficiently and successfully.

“I have worked with Nordby on construction projects since 1998.  At all times I have found them to add value, operate transparently and with integrity.  They are smart and dedicated people, who are also fun to work with.  They seek to partner with their clients to deliver projects on time and on budget.  From cost estimation to project management to the superintendents on the ground, they are a class act. I would work with Nordby again and recommend others to do so. ”
