Morning Bay Winery

Project Manager: Vince Knudsen while at Francl Architecture.

Pender Island, BC (2005 Completion)

Morning Bay’s Mount Menzies vineyard rises 80 hectares 400ft up a formerly forested slope, into which 20 terraces have been carved. The winery, completed in 2005, features vast areas of glass, both for views into the winery and for views out onto the vineyard and the stately trees. Morning Bay’s unique gravity flow winery imitates the shape of a traditional barn: cool lower floor or “stable” for wine storage, lofty upper floor for stainless steel tanks. And lots of terrace space for a glass of wine.
