Sei Querce Vineyards
Located in charming Geyserville, California, in the Sonoma Valley, SEI
QUERCE VINEYARDS is a fully sustainable
vineyard, accompanied by a CCOF California Certified Organic
Farm. Whenever possible, fossil fuels are eliminated in
the farming process and the project uses
"no till" style farming methods. In the place of commercial chemical weed
inhibitors or mechanical
extraction, the farm uses grazing sheep to maintain the ground cover.
Currently, work has begun on the Hillside Residence, Operations Barn and
the Tasting Room. Each of these individual
structures is an LEED project with the goal of attaining
LEED Platinum Certification.
THE VILLA, which is reminiscent
of Old Tuscany, sits high on the ridge overlooking the vineyards. The residence is
constructed of ICF - Integrated Concrete Form - which
utilizes 100% recycled polystyrene, FSC Certified Lumber packages,
Wool Insulation and Bio-based spray foam
insulation. Color integrated plasters are being used throughout the residence.
Systems, Solar Heated Radiant and domestic water and a Solar PV System services the Villa. The
landscape design follows the LEED native landscaping and water
THE OPERATIONS BARN is designed using
BAMCORE - Bamboo Panelized System and ICF - Integrated Concrete Form -
utilizing 100% recycled polystyrene. Whenever applicable,
reclaimed woods from the local area and property sourced
materials were reused in the construction
process. All of the base materials for the road is quarried from the property.
Local materials and labor is used
whenever possible. Keeping with the wishes of the owners, we endeavor to use the
least amount of water
possible on all of the projects encompassing the farm and the winery buildings.
