Showcasing 17 stunning residences in California wine country designed by top architects and designers.

2021 Foreword Indies, BRONZE: Regional

Through compelling narrative and stunning photography, authors Heather Hebert and Chase Ewald feature the architecture, style, and design of 17 homes--plus 4 unique auxiliary structures--in California's picturesque wine country. At Home in the Wine Country showcases the work of many of California's top architects and designers, with styles ranging from modern farmhouse to refined rustic to updated agrarian to unapologetically modern. This virtual tour documents a native, terroir-derived style that has evolved dramatically since the days when the region looked to European chateaux for inspiration. These ranges of styles--as well the varied approaches to managing environmental factors--is broad and captivating and pays homage to wine-country living in an atmosphere of understated, family-focused hospitality.

The California wine country is a region without distinct edges. In recent decades, this region has come to be defined by its lifestyle just as much as its wines. It has developed its own ethos, one whose contemporary expression is creative, sustainably minded, art-filled, and bathed in light. It has a youthful attitude and a decided sense of fun. Central to this distinct way of life is the indoor-outdoor experience; today's homes seamlessly integrate the region's sublime scenery and climate with its cuisine and lifestyle. At Home in the Wine Country pays homage to a region that is ever innovating, adapting, and evolving and showcases the best of design and lifestyle in California's iconic landscapes.
