Kistler Winery

Sebastopol, California


This Sonoma County facility is designed exclusively for Pinot Noir production. It makes full use of the site’s sloping topography to facilitate gravity flow. Foremost among the project’s sustainable design feature is a 15,000 square foot “living roof” which minimizes storm water run-off and increases the building’s thermal mass while reducing the building’s visual impact on the rural landscape.
