Capp Heritage Vineyards Tasting Room: The Victorian mahogany-and-brass bar—originally part of the historic Noyes Mansion—was already in the 1916 Migliavacca building in downtown Napa when Capp Heritage Vineyards began renovations to open its tasting room. It inspired owners (and antique collectors) Dan and Marguerite Capp to create an “1880s Room” theme. Photography by Gary Koehler.

Redwood Cellar Tasting Room & Hospitality Center at Charles Krug Winery: With the tasting bar located at one end and the Cucina di Rosa café at the other, seating was integral to the design.
