The Shed-teau Update

interim tasting room update

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.

wine promotion: buy 4 bottles, get a free logo wine glass

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!

Interim Tasting Room Opening!

 

Opening & Hours for the interim tasting room

Great news everyone!  Though the winery rebuild is still going on, we are excited to open an interim tasting room here on September 30, 2017 at 11am, with live music by Elliott Ranney starting at 2pm.  Yipee!!!

What to Expect

Interim Tasting Room at Peaceful Bend while waiting for the new winery rebuild

The interim tasting room is actually this shed, which Clyde has been hard at work cleaning out and making room for bottled wine, tanks, and barrels.  We’ve still got some work to do, but things have been coming together this past week, so I’m pretty sure we’ll be in good shape by the 30th.

We have seven of our most popular wines available again, so you’ll find something to sip on while you catch up with our progress. Plus you’ll be able to check out all the updates on the new winery building for yourself (we’ll give pre-tours of the new space as time and safety allow).

We’ll have a tasting table set up inside the shed, but currently there isn’t enough space for indoor picnics, so we’ll just be using the great outdoors for relaxing with a glass or two!  We do have a nice tent to help provide shade for those of you who want to be out of the sun.

The bad news is, for the time being, we’ll only have porta potties for bathroom space.  BUT, they will be nice and clean, and I’m also renting a hand-washing station so you can clean up a little easier.

Also, you might consider bringing your own lawn chair for the first couple of weeks, though we do have several folding chairs here just in case.  We’ll get something figured out as soon as we can on the table/chair front.

Regular Interim Tasting Room Hours

The interim tasting room will be open Friday-Sunday from 11-6 throughout the fall and early winter until the winery rebuild is finished.  We’ll also be hosting live outdoor music on Saturdays, so be sure to check out the offerings on our event page.

So if you’ve been pining for our wine (or just pining for us like Clyde, Pepe, Maggie, and I have all been pining for YOU), plan to come out and see us one of these fall weekends!
