Designing the interior

There's been a lot of activity at the winery this week. Richard can do pretty much anything, including build and install the countertops in the office which will serve as our desks. He also helped prepare the catering kitchen to meet health inspection standards and the potential needs of caterers.

And, painters are working in the tasting room! With the lights on, it's easy to imagine the room as a finished product. We expect to get the flooring in early February, and then it'll be ready to furnish.

We set up cold stabilization for the Concord. This entails lowering the temperature of the wine to just above freezing, about 25 degrees Fahrenheit. The process is intended to prevent crystallization and spoilage in the bottle. We can tell that the refrigeration is working because there's an inch of frost on the outside of the tank!

Check back next week for pictures of our progress!
