Eco Terreno Wines & Vineyard’s new tasting room and supper club, designed by Eva Bradley and Alicia Cheung of Studio Heimat, transports patrons to the lush, rolling hills of Alexander Valley. The interiors of both establishments, located in a historic building in San Francisco’s Jackson Square neighborhood, are inspired by the vineyard’s grounds, as well as their regenerative farming practices.
“It was our first time working on a tasting room,” Cheung notes. “We really enjoyed immersing ourselves in the farm, its biodynamic methods, and telling their story through material, space and light.” In the ground-level Urban Tasting Room, behind banquettes sheathed in Pierre Frey mohair, a pencil-on-linen mural by local artist Rafael Arana depicts views of Eco Terreno’s picturesque landscape. The stairwell descending to the subterranean space housing Lyon & Swan also features Arana’s work and helps to conjure the feeling of being transported.
“You’re going underground literally and conceptually,” says Bradley, “so the mural of the earth’s layers is meant to help you feel like you are submerging yourself into the ground.” Once downstairs, guests can sink into sumptuous leather and mohair seating while enjoying a show and taking in a Serge Gay Jr. triptych portraying a night of revelry.
