A celebration of the uniquely vibrant rustic and modern architecture and interiors of the winemaking regions of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
Wine Country Living presents more than twenty-five innovative spaces for living in the winemaking regions of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. Here is a portrait of the most contemporary spaces for vineyard living, all perfectly suited to twenty-first-century lifestyles.
This collection of houses and wineries spans the winemaking regions of Napa and Sonoma counties, Carmel, Oregon, Washington State, and British Columbia, making it the ultimate tour of vineyard living in breathtaking locales. Across the region, architects are creating innovative houses for country living, reimagining ways to engage the dramatic landscapes of the coastal regions that play host to North America's best vineyards.
Wine Country Living profiles new and recent projects that illustrate the inexhaustible potential of modern design to enter into a dialogue with the natural and regional context of the wine country of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. The region's architectural vanguard is represented, as well as established architects at the top of the field, including Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture and Jim Olson of Olson Kundig.

"In Linda Leigh Paul’s new tome, Wine Country Living: Vineyards and Homes of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest (Rizzoli New York, $55), the design authority surveys how California’s traditional chateaus and Spanish-style haciendas have since given way to modern viticultural temples to fit 21st-century tastes, designed by big-name firms, including Allied Works Architecture and Cutler Anderson Architects. The homes are as varied as the terroir, from bold cantilevered concrete and steel structures jutting out of an “unbuildable” hillside to a cozy wood-clad cabin nestled in a forest of Oregon firs." —C: CALIFORNIA STYLE MAGAZINE
