The Domaine-Thomson Wines’ cellardoor sits on a natural platform above the vines with panoramic views across the vineyard and Cromwell Basin to Lake Dunstan. Surrounded by mountain ranges, the image is of a classic Central Otago landscape.
The building architecture is inspired by local, historical buildings from the era of John Turnbull Thomson, chief surveyor of Otago in the mid-1800s and celebrated in the name of the wine. His era was the humble structures of gold miners and farmers who created shelter from readily available, simple materials. Like the terroir of the wine, the building profile honours this legacy by featuring corrugated iron roofs and walls, a lean-to porch and galvanised sheet chimneys.
