AIA Northern Virginia
Wine & Design - POSTPONED
June 30
10:30a-5:00p


This event has been postponed.

Spend a Saturday touring a pair or architecturally appealing wineries in Middleburg with the Young Architects Forum. Wineries to be visited include:
 
Boxwood Winery

Designed by Jacobsen Architecture, the plan is derived from a cruciform, as Simon Jacobsen believes the methods and culture of wine is a sacred process. The buildings are organized following the manner in which wine is produced. All of the processes surround a central tasting area and where visitors can taste the product and still be able to see how it is produced. The winery won a 2007 AIA Northern Virginia Design Award in Commercial Architecture

Greenhill Winery & Vineyards

Designed by O’Neil Architects, the Greenhill Winery consists of a new production facility and tasting room located adjacent to the current winery. The production area features three large bays, with the center barrel room flanked by the red wine fermentation bay and the bottling and case storage bay. The new building triples the production capacity of the winery.


1.5 HSW LUs. $75 AIA members; $80 non-members. The cost for the event covers a wine tasting at each location and bus transportation to and from the wineries. Continuing education credits will be offered. Space is limited to 25 participants, therefore, each person needs to register individually (i.e. including your plus one).


Details for the day:
Participants will meet in front of the ground level entrance to the Target in the Mosaic District. Parking is available for free in the garage and the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Station is a short walk from the shopping center. The bus will be leaving promptly at 11:00a so aim to arrive before then (suggested 10:30a).

Please plan to bring your own food with you for the day or you may purchase from what is available at each of the wineries. There is a Harris Teeter conveniently located along the path from the metro station to Target.
