Rock solid - Craggy Range Winery
Flanked by the massive symbolic escarpment of Te Mata Peak to the west and rivers teeming with trout to the east, Craggy Range Winery in Hawkes Bay, incorporating a new vineyard restaurant, bottling plant, executive accommodation and conference facilities, is as glorious a paradise as many might dream to reach.
Craggy Range Winery presented itself as a 3500 square metre 11 month challenge to the Rockcote licensed applicator, which resulted in the concrete block walls and external structure being coated in a Rockcote Render System with Traditionale Sponge finish followed by a selection of Resene Sandtex and Resene Zylone Sheen tinted to special Craggy Range colour blends of Fired Coral and Sisal.
Rockcote LiteRock Solid Render System, a composite exterior solid plaster cladding made up of a heavy duty, light weight, solid plaster, reinforced protected base to ensure the durability and integrity of the system, was used to coat the interior cement sheet backing board in the restaurant and wine cellar. Combined with the 'Traditionale' sponge texture, selected for cohesiveness with the rustic exterior, topcoats of Resene interior paint systems and the depth of choice in the Resene Total Colour System, the texture and colour meld together for a fitting finish.
The highlight inside is undeniably the Terrôir Restaurant and main Barrell Room, both superbly appointed with walls and ceilings curving horizontally and vertically creating unexpected smooth fluid flows of interior fabric in traditionally flat substrate zones.
Combine scenery with fields of vines destined to become superb wine and it's a dream location for any conference planner or restaurant diner.
