Shifting wine production from Dundee to nearby Newberg provided Argyle Winery with the chance to reinvent its visitor experience and transform what was once wine production facilities into a world-class, 21st-century wine destination. Starting with a master plan of the 2.5-acre site, a concept was developed that blended past with present.
Located next to a busy highway in the Willamette Valley, the complex offers the perfect opportunity to tell the story of Argyle and its wines. A new entry pavilion was created by repurposing an existing warehouse that formerly housed crush pad equipment. The warehouse’s corrugated metal siding was stripped away to become a semi-protected pavilion, showcasing its elegant metal structural frame. The pavilion leads guests to the heart of the site—the new Tasting House.

实际上，这个品酒亭也是由仓库改造而成的，从而为游客们提供了一个聚会、放松、品酒和了解葡萄酒相关知识的场所。原建筑中古老的道格拉斯冷杉木材被用于制作所有的展示架、桌子、嵌板和品酒吧台。在功能上，除了一个品酒室，这个品酒亭中还容纳了一个展示着4000多瓶葡萄酒的恒温酒库和一个陈列着老式起泡酒的空间。Argyle酒窖空间（Argyle Reserve Cellar）作为售卖区，为顾客提供迄今为止Argyle酒庄所产出的所有葡萄酒。会议室不但为一系列教育活动提供了空间场所，更使整个品酒亭在功能上更加完善。值得一提的是，自本项目落成并对外开放以来，酒庄的客流量增长了225%。

The Tasting House, another converted warehouse, is where visitors come together to relax, taste, and learn about wine. Old growth Douglas fir, discovered during the former building’s deconstruction, was used to make all of the shelving, tables, paneling, and the tasting bar. In addition to housing a Tasting Room, amenities include a climate-controlled wine library that showcases more than 4,000 bottles of wine, and the tirage library, which displays vintage sparkling wines. The Argyle Reserve Cellar offers the full line of Argyle’s current wines for purchase while a conference room for educational events rounds out the facilities. Since the redevelopment, the winery has seen a 225% increase in visitors.

During construction, 100 percent of the concrete and steel was recycled or repurposed with some elements, such as siding, roofing, and fixtures, finding new life as primary design features. As materials were deconstructed, they were catalogued and assessed for potential reuse. Throughout the site, remnant foundations were preserved as evidence of the complex’s past. The result is that materials are celebrated in their natural state, in some cases even when less than perfect. In one instance, the wood beams of one building had warped and twisted as a result of not having a strong base to sit on. Rather than hide these structural flaws, the design allows these beams to protrude from the wall and display their spiraling shapes—an homage to the building’s history and a subtle nod to the nature of nature.
