The historic stone building at Freemark Abbey has been an iconic Napa Valley landmark for well over 100 years. Originally constructed in 1886, the structure graces the label of one of the valley’s legacy wineries. The newly-envisioned structure simultaneously captures and reflects the winery’s historical significance, while providing a welcoming, immersive and thoroughly modern hospitality experience. The team began by re-conceptualizing the plan to create a logical flow, then lifted the roof, adding a clerestory to the top of the existing six-foot stone walls. New steel trusses and ridge skylights work together to create soaring new interior spaces.

“Our mission was not only to preserve Freemark Abbey for generations to come, but to enhance the estate with a modern aesthetic and create one-of-a-kind visitor experiences.”

Ted Edward Director of Winemaking, Freemark Abbey
