Dear Tribe,

We have excellent news!  As you may already know by way of email from Julia, we have moved our winery facility from Santa Rosa (where we were located for the past seven years) to a building at 5 Fitch Street in Healdsburg  Fitch Street runs north-south two short blocks east of Healdsburg’s famous town square, and our new facility is two blocks south on Fitch Street.

We have a long-term lease for about 11,000 square feet in the rear of the building, plus a large adjoining outdoor concrete work area.  We have also built a two-story winery office complex in one corner of our space at the building. Another winery, Longboard Vineyards occupies a smaller portion of the building, and has its tasting room at the front of the building.

Moving was a big job.  We had to move 11 large stainless steel fermentation tanks, plus about 1,200 barrels filled with wine, plus approximately 7,000 cases of bottled wines, plus lots of winemaking equipment, plus lots of office equipment and files.  And it’s amazing how much other miscellaneous stuff you accumulate over seven years at one location.

Our winery telephone numbers remain the same, and we are also continuing our long-time practice of using Molly’s and my residence address (5377 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448) as our winery mailing address. We are very pleased with our new space at 5 Fitch Street.

The owners of the building have just finished extensive remodeling, including a new, heavily insulated roof, as well as new wall insulation and paneling.  We are already looking forward to processing the 2014 grape harvest there and showing off the new winery facility to our Tribe members when they are in the Healdsburg area.  Come visit soon!
