A to Z Winery is an excellent example of what can be accomplished when environmental consciousness, visual aesthetic, and production functionality are given equal emphasis in the design process. This state-of-the-art winemaking production facility was constructed in harmony with its surroundings while integrating functionality with environmental sustainability.
WALSH self-performed much of the work for A to Z Winery, including:
Phase 1 (Swing Building): Metal building houses fermentation tanks, offices and a lab. Includes a CO2 extraction system. Unique characteristics are large polycarbonate clear-story, many overhead doors, large catwalk system to access tops of tanks. 30-feet tall. Used to process large quantities of wine to ferment, settle, store.
Phase 2 (Pivot Building): Three-story building; first floor is bottling and case storage. Second-floor includes wine processing. Third-floor includes administrative offices. Also includes a mezzanine with commercial kitchen and break room. Offices has views of the Willamette valley.
