Wow, that looks awesome. Best of luck to you!You guys are too kind. I will say that even though I buy grapes (for the most part) from commercial vineyards, I’m still often disappointed with the fruit. Now I will only have the person in the mirror to complain to. Another shot on how close the vines are to the barn, 12 rows total.

Yes, the pulls are fashioned after our winery “ branding”, K&K for Ken and Kathi, my better for 37 years.Nice shop did you build your own door pulls? They look real cool!
With all the potential for that space will you be keeping the original cold box for sentimental reasons?Yes, the pulls are fashioned after our winery “ branding”, K&K for Ken and Kathi, my better for 37 years.
A bigger look at the space. With so many moving parts, bits and pieces, I'm thinking of making some shelves with doors to hide all this stuff when not in use. With lumber prices, I'm sure it will cost $$$, but I'd like this to also be a place we can hang out, drink wine and not just a work space.

I'll see how it goes. It wouldn't take much to just build another room and have the AC unit direct the hot air outside. But right now, the daily temps are over 100 degrees, so I couldn't skip a day without the box and 75 gallons of wine.With all the potential for that space will you be keeping the original cold box for sentimental reasons?
Very good point. The Mrs. has asked the same thing, so I don't disturb her horses and chickens with the stuff I will be doing. The horse(s) will not be moved to the property until after the grape season, but I could see that this is something I need to think about.I am so envious of your setup. I'm curious if you're going to build a separation between the horse quarters and the wine making operation. Our horses generate a lot of dust and other stuff I would want to keep separate from the wine making.
