Buchan Uncorks New Design at NZ Winery

Global architectural firm The Buchan Group has uncorked its design of the Mt. Beautiful Tasting Room in Cheviot, New Zealand, aimed at introducing food and wine enthusiasts to this internationally successful, locally grown wine label.

Mt. Beautiful is a premium North Canterbury wine brand grown and produced at Spotswood, 9 kilometres north of Cheviot. The tasting room based in Cheviot showcases its varieties in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay.

Sympathetic to the timber-themed design of the adjoining Two Rivers Cafe, the fitout uses a blend of natural materials to reflect the environment of the vineyard.

The polished concrete counters have been coloured to mirror Hurunui stone from the local riverbed, while the counter dips to follow the alignment of the gully across which the vineyard spans. Natural light floods the space showcasing the heritage display and offered wines.

Buchan Christchurch Practice Manager Raylene McEwan said the winery’s new tasting facility had already hosted a bevy of visitors wanting to savour some of the best wines of New Zealand’s North Canterbury region.

“We wanted to deliver a memorable showcase for the unique wines from the North Canterbury region. As a result, our design incorporates a blend of natural features throughout to reflect the spectacular river valley in which the vineyard is located,” she said.

“The tasting room is accented by polished timber, polished concrete counters and large, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which create an inviting space to highlight Mt. Beautiful’s wine offering.

“We are confident that the combination of high-quality architecture and a pleasing wine selection will appeal to both local and visiting patrons.”
