This beautiful book explores the majestic, sometimes exotic architectural styles of the finest wineries in Bordeaux and the Napa Valley. The contrasts are fascinating. The Architecture of Wine reveals how the architects of the Bordeaux region distinguish themselves in the continuity of tradition, while the architects of the Napa Valley have chosen a reductionist path. Herzog & de Meuron's design for the Dominus Estate, for example, rivals the best architecture in America since Mies van der Rohe. Each vineyard and winery is presented in a series of superb photographs showing interiors and exteriors. An extensive index lists the architects for each project, geographic locations, types of wine produced, and guided tour schedules.

Featured Napa Valley wineries: Hess Collection, Beringer Vineyards, Robert Mondavi, Trefethen Vineyards, Sterling Vineyards, Turnbull, Dominus, Niente, Opus One, Clos Pegase, Robert Sinskey Vineyards, Artesa.
