DESCRIPTION OF BUILDINGS:
The Winery building is a beautiful post and beam barn, circa 1860, that has been partially converted into a production winery, barrel room, wine lab, storage rooms, washroom and equipment storage area. An architectural design for the building has been drawn and is available. All wine is currently produced in the processing and barrel rooms.
The winery has been outfitted with a complete new 400 amp electrical infrastructure that is fed from a 600 amp service from a pole on the property. New electrical panels in the mechanical room service the winery with substantial capacity for expansion. A 3 phase converter is installed and distributed throughout the winery and crush area.
A complete new water distribution system for hot and cold water is installed in the winery. The system includes a 6000 litre tank that feeds the jet pump pressure system. Currently rain water is captured from the barn roof and transferred into the 6000 litre holding tank to ensure pure and neutral pH water is available for processing. An inline canister filter, high capacity carbon filter, UV light filter all ensure the highest quality water is produced for use in the winery.
A new floor drain capture system is installed in the floor of the processing room, barrel room and upper crush area that feeds into a 7500 litre holding tank installed underground to the east of the winery building. This system is as per processing regulations for wine production.
The water distribution within the winery includes hot and cold feeds to sinks in the washroom, the laboratory and the processing sink. This infrastructure is all high quality modern piping. The internal system feeds into an underground septic holding tank located to the east of the winery building in line with the processing holding tank. A septic bed design and permit is authorized but has not been build out at this time.
The metal roof on the barn is in fair-good condition and was completely painted with a high quality ceramic paint in 2004. This paint has a 10 year guarantee.. The limestone foundation walls have been re-pointed inside and outside and are in good condition. The renovated space in the processing room, centre washroom/storage, laboratory, and barrel room have all been insulated with “spray foam” insulation to provide approximately an R20 insulation factor. These rooms are easily and efficiently climate controlled for summer and winter. For a majority of the year the barn provides a perfect cool ambient temperature for wine processing and storage.
Tasting Room Building – CN Caboose:
The tasting room is located in a renovated Canadian National railway Caboose. This is an original car that was transported to the site and placed on proper and authentic railway tracks built onsite.
The caboose has been completely stripped and renovated on the inside with new insulation, wiring, plumbing, wall, ceiling and floor covering. The electrical service is a new 200 amp panel with complete modern BX wiring throughout the car, with electrical heaters to provide sufficient heat for even the winter. Cooling is accomplished with a single window air conditioner for hot summer days. Wall, ceiling and floors are all finished in tongue & groove pine and cedar.
Although the floor space is limited it is very efficient with the west room facilitating the tasting bar, wine display, and retail sales. The centre section in the car has original metal lockers that are perfect for storage. The east room is a combination of kitchen, prep, storage and washroom. Either end of the caboose has heavy duty doors with wooden stairs to accommodate the transition from railway car to ground.
The tasting room bar is a self contained wooden unit with storage and wine glass holders, metal bucket containers and drawers for cash and supplies. The kitchen has a full refrigerator, a commercial grade dishwasher for wine glasses, a 50 bottle wine cooler and double sink. The washroom has a small sink and toilet that connects to an underground holding tank to the north of the building. The water supply is from a 30 foot dug well located approximately 50 feet from the caboose. The water supply is drawn by a jet pump and tank in the caboose with filter and UV filter built in line. A small hot water tank provides adequate hot water.
Situated directly in front of the Caboose is a 50’x30’ concrete slab patio. Electrical outlets are situated around the patio as well as to the service bar cabana. The outdoor bar is fully equipped with service counter and coolers made of high quality stainless steel. The entire patio and surrounding grounds are currently licensed for wine sales.
