Architecture Hospitality Design Firm Returns to Expand the Wine Country Inn, Palisade
DENVER – , a Denver-based architecture and interior design firm specializing in hospitality, urban housing and mixed-use projects, has returned to Colorado’s wine country to design a new winery, tasting room, restaurant and ballroom additions for the Wine Country Inn in Palisade. Owners Richard and Jean Tally originally tapped JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE to design the 80-key Wine Country Inn in 2009.
The 12,000-square-foot winery and tasting room will allow the Tallys to produce wine from their own grapes on the 23-acre farm. The 3,000-square-foot kitchen and restaurant addition includes an outside entrance for local guests as well as new signage to increase visibility from I-70. The addition provides for a shared kitchen, allowing an 800-square-foot ballroom expansion.
“Richard and Jean are great to work with, and we are pleased to help them accommodate their growing business,” said Jim Johnson, founder of JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE. “Palisade is an increasingly popular destination for Colorado locals as well as out-of-state tourists. The Wine Country Inn has become the town’s namesake hotel, and we’re proud to partner with them once again to ensure their wine-oriented campus continues to support the needs of the community and represents the best of what Palisade has to offer.”
The Wine Country Inn features meeting space for corporate retreats, weddings and other social events. The property also includes an outdoor pool, oversized hot tub, outdoor living and dining areas, an extended wrap-around front porch, ground-level guestrooms and other vineyard-related amenities.
