Let’s Try This Again…

It has become abundantly clear over the last few months, that I’m sucking at keeping up with this blog. It’s easy to say, and certainly true, that I have been too busy with the construction of the winery and keeping up with the vineyard but in the end, that’s really no excuse. So, that being said, my goal is to blog at least once a month.

Ok, now that we got that out of the way, let’s get caught up on the progress, there has been plenty of it. Construction on the winery is moving along nicely. The framing is all done, the roof is on, the electrical rough-in is almost done and the plumbing rough-in is done. By the end of the year the siding will be on, the HVAC will be roughed in, and maybe even the insulation will be done. Here’s a couple of pictures to catch you up on that:

The vineyard is finally looking much better. With the tractor I’ve been able to keep it mowed like it’s supposed to be. Unfortunately I’m not there as often as I should be so wildlife did some serious damage to the vineyard or at least any possible harverst. As a result we didn’t get any fruit again this year, but at least we’ve had some vine growth. I’m hoping that next year with some agressive pest control I’ll actually be able to get a small harvest:

And lastly, as far as progress goes, effective 10/01/2013 we are officially a farm winery with a farm winery ABC License in hand.
