Originally built in 1878 in the Queen Anne style, this historic Victorian home was structurally upgraded, lovingly restored, and reincarnated to transform into Faust winery’s first ever tasting venue. Every element was carefully implemented to ensure the soul of the building was preserved, while infusing the design with an open modern sensibility. Conceptually, the staircase serves as a primary design element. As the palette transitions from one of dark opulence to bright simplicity, it represents the transcendence of the winery’s namesake: Faust, the protagonist of Goethe’s classic play.
