A small building in the Napa Valley was commissioned by an Austrian artist and self-taught architect back in 1988 when the owner of the winery, planning to expand his business, was attracted by the prints of Hundertwasser, and he invited him to design the Quixote Winery.
Wine production began there in 1999, but finishing work continued for several more years.
In general, this building is the only building of Hundertwasser in the USA - his "classic" work: it has practically no even floors, the roof is covered with 80 cm of soil, and there are trees, and it is impossible to find two identical doors or windows there.
Color accents are set with bright beaded tiled columns. They had to be ordered in Germany, since for the color saturation required by Hundertwasser's project, it was necessary to use lead dyes, which are prohibited in the USA.
The organic, unexpected forms of the winery building, according to the artist, are more in line with human needs than the unified geometry of modernism.
