Bastoni Vineyards, Santa Rosa, Calif.

Spanning 40 acres, the vineyard has been a staple in the Sonoma Valley for decades and it recently embarked on a mission to replace the 70-year-old wooden barn used for its grapevine storage. With a desire to maintain the look of an authentic barn, but the need to incorporate modern functionality, owners of the vineyard decided to explore building with metal.
Metal paneling was used for the walls and roof of the 2,100-square-foot barn. To achieve the traditional barn aesthetic, the wall panels were coated in a Rustic Red color of Fluropon while the metal roof panels were finished in Polar White. In addition to achieving the desired authentic barn look, the coatings also add to the durability of the structure.
Fluropon’s adhesion properties were helpful when coating the roof, which features fully functional louvered cupolas. The Polar White coating on the roof also will help reflect ultraviolet rays, reducing the heat in the building and providing a cool space to store the grapevines. Additionally, Fluropon protects the building’s exterior; it is formulated to resist chalking and fading. The coating also offers color retention, which will help the Bastoni Vineyards barn sparkle in the valley.
In addition to acting as the main grapevine storage barn, the new building provides space for Bastoni Vineyards to host vineyard tours, as well as serves as a scenic location for a variety of events.
