Surrounded by 280 acres of vine-covered hillsides and mature oak trees, the Quintessa Pavilions are a trio of wine-tasting shelters for a Napa Valley estate. Each of the structures was carefully arranged within the vineyard, keeping most of the natural landscape intact. Although modern in design, their clean lines look at home in their rustic setting with the addition of reclaimed wood and local stone. While the steel and timber awning provides protection from the elements, large openings and glazed doors keep the space at one with the scenery, allowing guests to sip on their Cabernet Sauvignon while admiring the fields where it was grown.
