« Domaine Serene

Dayton, Oregon

Completed 2001

Architect of Record: Ernie Munch

Domaine Serene was completed for the 2001 harvest season. The label has been producing exquisite Pinot Noir since 1989.

A commitment to quality wine led owners Grace and Ken Evenstad, along with their winemaker, to create a gravity fed winery.

While the winery appears to be a village of several different buildings, they are all connected by the underground barrel and case storage areas. The stair tower serves as an airshaft bringing cool, fresh air into all levels of the winery. Materials of concrete, douglas fir, and stucco combine with the buildings’ forms to fit the Evenstads’ desire for an Old World appearance.
