Tasting Lounge

Paserene’s wine tasting room in Franschhoek is truly something special. Inspired by, and in theme with the migratory swallow, it represents the continuity of the brand.

Conceptualised and designed by SCS Architects, Etienne Stols, Principal Architect said: “The building was designed to complement the current landscape and not to be in competition, but in harmony with its surroundings by creating an architectural language of hoes materials and soft organic forms.”

The result is a contemporary, but classically understated building resembling a martin’s nest: light wooden cladding is used to create a modern-style ‘crypto-porticus’ offset against rough slate accents, resembling the mud and clay swallows use to build their nests.

Glass stack doors allow for the whole building to become an open structure, transforming the beautiful exterior into a natural extension of the interior. The facilities overlook a small dam on our wine estate, a clever nod towards the swallow’s habit of swooping over water.
