Strawbale Construction: Orofino Winery
BC’s Similkameen Valley is home to Orofino, the country’s first strawbale winery. Powered by solar energy, the ecofriendly design ensures consistent insulation for barrel-room temperatures, and relief from the summer heat. Sip a dry Riesling or Cabernet Franc Rosé at an indoor or outdoor tasting. Another option? Stay for the night at Orofino’s one- and two-bedroom vineyard suites, atop the barrel room.
