Peregrine

On a crisp winter morning this week, with the mist rising from the hills, we set off for a little adventure following the Kawarau River in the South Island. We stumbled across the Peregrine vineyard nestled in the Gibbston valley which was built by Architecture Workshop in 2003 (winning the NZIA supreme award in 2005). Peregrine is a native falcon and the shape of the architecture was intended to evoke its wingspan in flight, on this morning it was set against the mist as the sun gradually heated the land, and with a back drop of  mesh covered vines. With the powerful presence of the mountain ranges in the distance, it appeared light and delicate, an ephemeral element hovering over the grounded wine cellar beneath. Simple and beautiful.
