SELECTED PROJECT

SEGHESIO WINERY

Saving $$ by Design

CHALLENGE Develop an overall plan identifying the most cost effective solution for Seghesio Winery to meet its production goals for the next decade.

SOLUTION
The plan developed by The Fifth Resource Group recommended restoring the Old Winery Building into a barrel cellar, with tasting room and offices. The existing building resembled a large old agricultural storage type building. The Fifth Resource Group designed a more modern looking winery building typical of Sonoma County and kept the roof from the original building.

RESULTS The new design resulted in a cost effective solution that provides Seghesio Winery with the facilities it will need to meet its production goals for the next decade while also reducing its operating expenses by bringing the barrel storage onsite instead of continuing the expense of a leased barrel facility plus transportation costs. Sustainable “Green” Design elements used include: Bringing barrel storage onsite to reduce environmental impacts from trucking; super insulated shell; night air cooling; and photovoltaic solar to generate power onsite.
