Significance: Winehaven, a complex of 35 buildings constructed between 1907 and 1919, is significant historically and architecturally in the areas of wine production and industrial design. During its 12-year operation, Winehaven was one of the largest (reputable sources say it was the largest) wineries in the world, capable of storing, aging, and bottling millions of gallons of wine. Architecturally, the Winehaven complex represents an unusually intact company town, containing 29 residences, two very large winery buildings, a shipping building, and three support buildings (a power plant, fire house, and warehouse), all dating to the period in which the winery operated. In addition, the winery buildings are unusual and significant examples of fireproof and seismically-reinforced industrial buildings designed in response to the 1906 earthquake in Northern California.
