Victorian Architecture Awards Accolades
Shortlist – Regional Prize (Vic)
Victorian Jury Presentation

“A state-of-the-art winemaking facility, a maturation room and a fully-fledged function space that represents the brand, as its embassy, on all levels.

The building has not only met the brief but exceeded it. Manufacturing and storage spaces that can be deployed as stunning showrooms, dining and function rooms are working beautifully at Levantine Hill.

The subtlety of the architecture has delivered a building that, whilst striking and almost imposing, sits beautifully and gently
in its environs.”
