Chapel Hill Winery (#5 of 5)

The tasting room is located in a converted chapel of which the entrance has been enclosed within a large glassed vestibule (shadows) which also gives onto conference rooms etc. The doorway repeats the style of now a locally well known stained-glass window within the chapel (see following). The style is repeated again elsewhere, as in an adjacent gateway (below). Note also local ironstone incorporated into the walls in a style that is attractive and locally popular.

I noticed the ironstone over the window in the tasting room of your earlier post. I don't remember seeing stone blocks of that elongated shape before. It lends an elegance to the normally more rustic appearance of unfinished stone. I can understand how the wonderful Gothic arch was adopted as a motif for the winery and the local area. It's quite distinctive. What sets this shot apart of course are those wonderful shadows falling dramatically across the facade. It's quite striking.
