SELECTED PROJECT

TRIONE WINERY

Building a Legacy

CHALLENGE To design and build a winery facility including a tasting room that would be a showcase for the Trione brand and that would exceed the quality that is synonymous with the Trione name.

SOLUTION
The Fifth Resource Group developed plans that called for a complete renovation of the stone building, with barrel storage and open-top fermenters on the first floor and a private event room on the second floor. The tasting room and cinderblock buildings were both torn down and replaced with a new tasting room and production facility in separate buildings just north of the winery. The three buildings are tied together with large decks that overlook hundreds of acres of Alexander Valley vineyards. They also began retrofitting the two-story Nervo building, with its steep roof and distinctive hop tower. The first story of the building contains eight 10,000-gallon redwood wine storage tanks, while the second story is empty to allow for future growth. The structure is framed with massive old-growth redwood timbers.

RESULTS The much anticipated new Trione Winery opened for the 2007 crush and it’s tasting room completed in 2008, was met with great fanfare and outstanding reviews. “This building has so much potential, so much history,” Mark Trione said during a tour. The winery has become a universal success, producing 10,000 cases of premium wine . The tasting room is host to cult wine fanatics all over the world that appreciate the relaxed natural setting and beautifully restored stone buildings of a past era.
