Designed by Dave Matthews and master craftsman William Johnson and finished in 2000, the Blenheim Vineyards winery building was designed to have minimal impact on the environment.
The building is split into the tasting room above, from which you can peer through paneled glass floors into the wine production facility below, which is kept cool by being nestled into the side of a hill. Constructed from reclaimed wood fitted together with mortise and tenon joints, the timber frame tasting room is lined with south-facing windows and skylights, which facilitate full daylighting of the space. In fact, no electricity is required to light the space in the summer. In the winter, the lights are only turned on once it gets dark outside, and the tasting room benefits from passive solar heating throughout the day as well.
Our indoor tasting room is open for guided wine tastings by reservation Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday from 11am-5:30pm. Open from 11am-7:30pm on Saturdays! Each tasting includes five wines guided by our staff and lasts approximately 1 hour. The cost for this experience is $25 per person. Tastings are complimentary for Wine Club and Oenoverse members.
Our outdoor spaces are open on a first come basis for wines by the flight, glass, or bottle.
Our food options include a pre-order cheese selection by Wheyside or guests are welcome to bring their own food.
Our online store is always open!
