Perfect Pairing: Ram's Gate Winery in San Francisco's Bay Area

ODA Design Associates and Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects collaborated on Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma, California, where a custom ipe table and benches invite picnics in front of the wine-aging hall.

Winery buildings stand amid 137 acres of vineyard.

Two parallel bars in the tasting room have counters of Calacatta marble.

Nearby custom tables are likewise marble-topped.

Custom concrete pedestals elevate oak wine barrels above the floor of a cellar.

Custom pieces in the lounge include lanterns in corrugated bronze and seeded acrylic and dining tables in brushed aluminum, oak, and glazed ceramic. Dan Johnson designed the dining chairs.

Chairs at the dining table in the library are attributed to Ole Wanscher, circa 1950.

The parlor features a pendant fixture by Enrico Franzolini and Vicente García Jiménez and a limitededition cotton-viscose tapestry by Donald and Era Farnsworth.

Fermentation takes place in a room with a view of Wildcat Mountain.

A doublesided fireplace stands between the entry courtyard and the lounge.

Acrylic-slip covered chairs and teak tables furnish the courtyard.

John Hutton chairs gather by the steel-clad fireplace on the veranda.

For the underground private dining room, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy upholstered the chairs, his own production pieces, in vinyl and cotton.
