Fine winery architecture

About a month ago I spent the weekend on the Mornington Peninsula and whilst I was there I took the opportunity to check out some of the wineries in the area.

  1. Hi Neil, greetings from Foxeys Hangout. Trust you enjoyed the wine as well as the architecture at Foxeys. O’Connor + Houle are the architects who made the ‘farm shed’ structure happen for us, on the footprint of an old dairy next to our farmhouse. They did a fabulous job in difficult circumstances: objections, hold-ups, huge changes to the brief, budget catastrophes, everything. We love the result and have gone on loving it for more than five years. Hope to see you back soon – if you’d like to see the working part of the winery as well as the cellar door, ask Tony (Foxeys’ still winemaker, you’ll often find him behind the tasting bar) about it. Tell him you’re an architect and unless he’s flat-chat – which he will soon be, as we’re coming into vintage – he’ll happily show you around.

  2. Cathy. Thanks for that information regarding the architects at Foxey’s Hangout. Will be sure to take you up on your offer next time I am down that way as well as tasting some more of your wine.

    Thanks again.
