Hi everyone! So sorry to be so long with updates. Deer season and Thanksgiving slowed everything down around here, but the last couple of weeks, lots of stuff has been happening with the new building.
The most visible is that the siding is being installed. The crew is still working on the side and the back of the building today, but they worked hard yesterday and the day before on the front of the building.
Once again, I’m amazed by how easily these guys can work on top of a ladder!
So far, so good, and this only makes us more excited to be in the new building permanently.
In less showy, but still important progress news: the HVAC folks are working on heating & air, while the plumber has worked on installing pipes for water. Plus Clyde has met with the well digger, so that process is underway. It’s so fun to have all this progress here at the end of the year!
Meanwhile, we are enjoying the space in our ‘shed-teau’. We have a few tables set up inside, and I’ll be open Friday and Saturday this weekend (Dec. 22 & 23) from 11am to 5. We’ll be closed on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, but otherwise I’ll stick to the temporary hours. Of course, feel free to call and make an appointment outside of those hours too!
Clyde has been working hard to create a more welcoming space in our interim tasting room – now coined the ‘shed-teau’ (ooo la la!) – and I wanted to share a few of the updates he’s made recently.
Here’s a quick video tour of what you’ll see when you visit us this winter:
And if you don’t want to watch the video, I’ve got a few pics of the space too.
Two changes you’ll notice outside are a window to let a bit more natural light inside and a level platform that will hopefully make it easier to step into the room.
Inside we have our tasting room table in front of a few of the tanks and barrels we purchased this summer.
And opposite the tasting room table, we now have three tables and a few chairs, just in case you’d like to hang out for a bit. We do have a heater, and lots of insulation so the space is nice and cozy. Clyde plans to dry wall next week too, so there might be a few more changes when you visit.
I’ll be open this weekend, but we will be closed on Thanksgiving day and Friday. We’ll re-open on Saturday after Thanksgiving, so if you’re low on wine after the turkey dinner, you can get stocked back up. For more about our holiday hours, click over to this page.
While you’re here you can take advantage of our winter wine promotion too. For every 4 bottles of wine you purchase, you’ll receive a free logo wine glass. It’s a little gift for you to thank you for putting up with our craziness while we get back in business. Cheers!
