Open House Celebration June 4th
Long Shadows will celebrate the new space with a public open house on Sunday, June 4.

The new 7,400 sq ft. tasting room sports a modern, industrial vibe. Soaring 35-ft. ceilings, a double-sided, copper-cased ﬁreplace, a dramatic backlit bar with granite countertops, polished cement ﬂoors with large area rugs, and a gleaming grand piano create an inspired, contemporary impression. Soft, upholstered chairs and comfortable leather sofas punctuate the ﬁrst-ﬂoor seating area. Sliding glass doors lead to the Key Club Lounge, open exclusively to Long Shadows' wine club subscribers, and a private event room suitable for intimate dinners, curated tastings or business meetings. Upstairs, three ﬁre pits, heat lamps and plentiful seating invites guests to settle into the covered upper deck for a casual, outdoor tasting. Strata Architects designed the space. R l Miller completed construction.
The opening of the new tasting room coincides with Long Shadows' 20th anniversary. "Since our founding, Long Shadows has been about bringing people together. We wanted this new facility to celebrate our community by designing a place to gather," said Long Shadows president & CEO Dane Narbaitz. "Our goal was to create an environment that reﬂects the quality of our wines in a setting that welcomes our supporters and invites those new to Long Shadows to discover our wines."
