Have you ever noticed how fast time flies when you have deadlines? I can't believe it's already August 2017. With harvest quickly approaching, the new winery construction is progressing rapidly. The stucco on the outside of the building was being applied the day I visited and the concrete floors were being polished and treated. There is a lot to accomplish over the next 60 days, but I have faith the project will be move-in ready by the end of October. As long as all permits are approved and we can get internet service in the tasting room, we will open. As with everything in the wine industry, we must hurry and wait.
We are proud to be partnered with the Port of Kennewick and Banlin Construction. This is a first class project they are putting together. As you may know, there have been some delays. Completing this project has proven more difficult than the port commissioners, architect, city, and I thought. One foreman told me the finished project will be 100% better than the original drawings. I can't wait to see!
We hope to open this location in November 2017. Meanwhile, if you would like to purchase our wine now, feel free to navigate to our "Wine" page above, or visit our tasting room in Seattle, Washington.
