It’s been some time since we provided you all with an update on the progress of building our winery and opening to the public. As you might have guessed, there are a lot of federal, state and local regulations regarding opening a winery and it does take some time to go through the process. I’m happy to say that our federal application to the Tax and Trade Bureau has been submitted and is pending. We anticipate that will take less than three months to complete. Once that is done we should be able to quickly obtain approval from the state and start actually producing wine. Until we are licensed, we cannot even start fermenting. Our goal is to begin making wine this fall with some of the wine to be released next spring. We’ll keep you informed of our progress and exact dates as we move forward. There IS light at the end of the rainbow!
