Medlock Ames

Set in the heart of Alexander Valley’s wine country, this historic site was home to a century old general store with saloon and gas station, purchased by our clients to transform into a winery tasting room. The team’s shared vision was to marry the history of the original building with a new, modern aesthetic overflowing with character.  Two distinct visitor areas were conceptualized. The main tasting room, akin to a one-room schoolhouse, with a large floating tasting bar, communal tables and floor-to-ceiling triple-hung windows that open to an outdoor terrace and picnic space that takes in the views of the garden and surrounding vineyard. The second room invokes a nostalgic, speakeasy atmosphere and allows for a more intimate tasting experience.
