Once we received county approval to put up the winery building, it was full steam ahead. Winter comes early to the prairies so it was a bit of a race to get it roof tight before the snow. Peter and Margie will continue to work on the inside during the winter, with an estimated completion date of March, 2019.
A local contractor helped ready the plot for the foundation.

Milestone - Cement Floor
Peter assembled the ribs bolt by bolt before they were erected
