Construction of Our Winery Building

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.

Saskatchewan Power installed a new transformer for the winery, which has higher power needs than the house and barn, with a separate meter too.
