Case Study: Red Wine-Chilled via Radiant Cooling

Posted on June 1, 2011 by Joel WilliamsNo Comments

Commercial radiant temperature control from Uponor is highlighted in this feature article exploring one of Napa Valley’s most prestigious wineries.  The article that appeared in the June issue of Environmental Design and Construction Magazine, illustrated why radiant was the only option to deliver the consistent and precise temperature control required for a new winery and barrel cellar.  “Temperature control plays a major role in the winemaking process,” explains Kathryn Hall, owner of Hall St. Helena, who notes that the loss of temperature control can ruin an entire batch of wine and would result in a significant loss.

Indeed, the radiant system exceeded expectations, and the project’s environmentally friendly construction recently received the prestigious Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) award. That recognition made Hall St. Helena, the first winery in California to achieve the top certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
