BLUE GROUSE ESTATE WINERY AND VINEYARD

BLUE GROUSE ESTATE WINERY AND VINEYARD

DUNCAN, VANCOUVER ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Elements of the Blue Grouse master plan include roads, trails, vineyard expansion, ponds, a winery, vineyard barn, guest cottages, and manor house.   The winery takes cues from a bird’s form which separates this structure from the covey of wineries in Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.  The curve of the grouse’s head and neck are design inspirations for the roof. The colors of the construction materials are of the bird’s feathers and the 22 foot tall blue entry door is the color of a tail feather flashing in the sunlight.  The design employs sustainable strategies including: reuse of an existing structure; water recycling; controlled solar gain for summer cooling and winter heating; daylighting elements cutting approximately 66 percent of electricity use; underground barrel and sparkling wine storage and ground source heat pumps.
