I had the unique privilege of touring Dominus winery by Herzog & de Meuron yesterday.  They’re notorious for not allowing tours or tastings, but once a month to do allow a small architectural tour and I was lucky enough to tag along with a group.  The builidng is Herzog & de Meuron’s first in the U.S. and for those of you non-architecture geeks, they’re the same architects that designed the De Young Museum in San Francisco and most recently the Bird’s Nest stadium for the Olympics in Beijing. 
Fall has come to Napa and the colors were amazing. Enjoy!

Hi Rebecca_SF! I was wondering if I could lift one of your pictures from this website for educational purposes. This image will not be reproduced without permission and you will retain all rights to it.

I work in a Visual Resources library and I’m putting together some slides for a professor who is teaching a course on contemporary art. Your picture “the main arch/ entry” would be a great addition.

Thanks very much!

Sure, the pictures were taken by my friend Michael Townsend and he doesn’t mind. I’m glad you like them.
