What winemaker Charles Smith does, he does big and that is much in evidence in the newly opened Charles Smith Wines Jet City in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. At 32,000 square feet, the new facility is claimed to be the largest urban winery in North America. We sent resident photographer Richard Duval to take a look.

“You’re struck by how the winery echoes the same look and feel of the wine labels,” noted Duval. “It’s spare but it’s not Spartan, and wholly memorable. A clever mix of wood and metal, the first floor tasting room is Northwest industrial chic while the second floor reflects the aero heritage of the area. With 21-foot ceiling to floor windows, you’ll get a ground-level view of the comings and goings at Boeing Field. Windows into the huge production/barrel room insert visitors right into the winemaking process. It impresses.”
