Roth Winery Tasting Room

The conversion of the barn into a fully functioning winery that includes both production and hospitality was completed in three phases. During the first phase, which took place in 2015-2016, the barn was converted from barrel storage into a full-production winery. Nordby Construction modified the 29,546-square-foot building to accommodate the production of 40,000 cases per year.

In the second phase, the team added a hospitality element by inserting a second entry along the long facade to create an integrated tasting area and an additional space for private VIP tastings. The team installed a commercial kitchen, custom casework, and turned an oak tree felled on the property into a custom-fabricated table. The interior walls are lined with templated and pre-fabricate recycled panels, which required precise installation as they could not be modified in the field.

A wall of glass provides views of the barrels from the main tasting room. For the third and final phase of work, completed in 2017, the team at Nordby wine caves created an extensive cave to the north of the building, which houses barrel storage and a striking set of underground hospitality spaces.
