Amador Winery, CA

Energy Mass™ Wall,
Heavy Timber

Nestled in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada, this five thousand square foot winery is designed and constructed using the most advanced building technology available. Employing the Energy Mass™ smart-building system, the winery harvests “free” night cooling storing it for daytime use. A computer controlled cooling system, embedded in the Energy Mass™ wall, maintains constant cellar temperature, keeping evaporative losses under 1% while using only 20% of the energy required with conventional winery construction. The Energy Mass™ smart - building technology returns $50,000.00 ($10.00 / sq. ft.) annually to the owners through its evaporative loss and energy savings alone.
