Opus One
Thursday, May 16th

Napa Valley, Ca.

Opus One winery is loaded with inspiring details sometimes difficult to recognize in the ocean of pretention. The vines that follow the road at the entrance of the property circle around the olive trees.

The highlight of the visit is the underground room in which the wine of the previous year is stored. Of course much technical attention has been given to this room such as constant temperature and humidity but aesthetics have not been left behind. The room is curved and all the barrels are arranged following this curve. Like a command post, a small closed tasting room is in the center of this curve.
