The winery has been designed around a central courtyard, with barrel storage rooms and a tasting room opening onto the outdoor space, while 9 foot (2.7m) overhangs provide protection from the elements.

Off to the side of the courtyard is the tasting room. Inside, whitewashed hemlock planks cover the walls, and a tasting bar sits on top of two wine barrels. Open shelving displays all of the current wines. At the end of the bar is a larger table with bench seating for small groups.

For an even more relaxed wine tasting experience, there’s a wrap around window seat with views of Mt. Hood, and a wood-burning fireplace for an informal living room atmosphere.
