That reminds me of the troubles in sending out bulk mail. Was always a PITA when I had to do it.

Well I'm 100% in we closed on the (expansion) property last Thursday. I think my first step will be getting the 'conditional use' permit from the county which will allow for a store and facility (which principally prepares our farmed product for sale) and also a tasting room.

Sounds great, codeman! Best of luck to you on the permit and the following steps.

Still jousting with the PLCB for my license. They still want another picture of the winery and another form signed. Will it ever end?

I do have 5 labels approved by the TTB. Slow but sure....

PA is a real PITA. In ND, it took a whole 2 days to get my state license after my TTB license. I think they just wanted to make sure the $100 check cleared.

we are on the other side of the state (east of Pittsburgh), but don't let that stop you from coming and having a taste or three....

Update. So I was told by 1 woman at the county that we needed a conditional use permit. But her coworkers all said they didn't think so. I called OLCC, TTB, tax assessor and read the law myself. Apparently we are not building a 'winery' we are building an agricultural manufacturing and processing facility. The difference is because we won't have a tasting room or on-site sales or be open to the public. All of our sales will be internet based and from 'special events' where we will also advertise our wine. So this is good news because it saves over $10k in permit fees and we don't have to build stupid things like an enclosed garbage area that's a minimum of 9x12 even though we just have a 30 gallon garbage haha. And 2 labeled parking spaces. Ag permits are very cheap and I wired our new house and it passed on the first inspection so I'll be wiring the new 'grape processing facility' haha.
