The Tondelli Winery

Winery Design

An Italian Wine-maker with a field of vines in Escondido needed a place make his brew. It was a privilege to design and help build his wine making retreat with EPS and steel. I continue the habit of visiting the site regularly to see my friend. The owner’s attention to quality and detail made this project very special to me.
