Composing a Masterpiece

A venture like this required an impressive groundbreaking home and in 1991 the new Opus One Winery was completed. In many ways, the facility perfectly reflects the wine here. The use of local resources, combined with Old World architectural influences, has created a space that represents the synthesis between the two families. Even more compelling a connection might be the wineries positioning, dug in as it is into the soil of the Napa Valley. In essence, it becomes one with the Valley as Opus One has attempted to do with their wine.

    Nice article Greg...it's a shame Dominus doesn't offer tours or tastings.

    Oh, I could add so much more... how can we host photos here? Maybe there is a way, but I have not been able to do it except for profile. A photo page dedicated to wineries would be nice. I have two amazing ones of chateau montelena, one featured on an SF news channel. Maybe a contributive blog for all on wineries?
