Eco-Friendly Barrel Caves and Chateau Construction
Built to barrel age wine, previously done in the Chateau's cellar, this extensive tunnel system covers 25,000 square feet of area and provides ample room for 4,000 barrels.

temperature, eliminating the need for costly and power hungry

reducing evaporative wine losses from the barrels. The Chateau
itself is also partially underground, dug into the hillside,
helping to maintain a consistently cool temperature much like the
