Located in the picturesque town of Marananga in the Barossa Valley the cellar door redevelopment gracefully perches onto the rear of the existing old settlers cottage which has been the wines sales building since 2003. BGi worked closely with Torbreck to ensure the historical characteristics of old cottage remained while the contemporary extension to the rear of the cottage encapsulated the magnificent vineyards across the valley. The large timber deck with a timber ramping entrance way allows the visitors to truly get an appreciation of place.
The entrance consists of a large ramping timber deck opening out to a large undercover entertaining deck. Entering through the large curtain glass walls the interior is finished with new Blackbutt timber floors, Blackbutt timber tasting counter and associated joinery. In the centre of the cellar door is the Old Stock Wine room, a humidity and temperature controlled wine room that stores a single bottle of every wine Torbreck has ever made. Dividing the back and front of house is a 8m long x 2.4m high new stone wall. The back of house area includes 2 private offices and a complete commercial kitchen.
BGi Building were engaged as the principal builder and project manager of the cellar door development and built in accordance with the architectural design completed by JBG Architects.
