Category: Commercial / Public Finalist: 2019 MBA Building Excellence Awards - Project of the Year

Shaw Wines is located in Murrumbateman within the southern region of NSW. The Cellar Door, at Shaw Wines, is a bold building that reflects the quality of wines produced by Shaw vineyard. Apart from providing a much needed new facility for Shaw Wines, the Cellar door will become a destination for wine lovers and improving the tourism potential for this local wine region.
Within the building, there is a constant reminder and connection with wine. There are views of the vineyards in the distance, there are displays of signature wines and there is a glass sculpture made up of a collection of wine glasses that filters the light into the stairwell leading to the cellar below. The building provides a point of sale, but also provides a sanctuary where one can site, enjoy a glass of wine and take in the spectacular countryside displaying the fruits of the vine.
