Earlier this week I had an opportunity to visit and photograph some Napa Valley wineries that have very compelling architectural aspects. One of the more interesting was the Quixote Winery located a few miles north of Napa, California. It was designed by famous Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) who has no other buildings in the United States. Apparently Hundertwasser had a lot of rules, among which were: 1) No straight lines, 2) Roofs are planted with grass and trees, 3) Every building is capped with a gold leaf onion dome to elevate man's sense of himself, and 4) Color is king.

All photos were taken with D700 + 24-85 f/2.8-4.

Comments are welcome.

Bob
