The resort enjoy earthen tones, shades of brown and black, represented by a range of natural wooden textures. Walls of vertical slender wooden slats create a texture that plays with the patchy hues of the softer rug and contrasts with the solid rigidity of the black-stained timber flooring. Polished copper orbs hang from the ceiling at different heights as lights, alluding to the industrial aspects of the wine making equipment. Blocks of solid trunks make side tables everywhere from interior spaces to the exterior rooms buried into the ground, open to the sky. The fireplaces are encased in steel frames as the flames emerge from a bed of dark rocks.
