My father & I decided that all of us wanted to make wine. For years our family had been grape farmers. The grapes would be made into juice, jams or jelly. I convinced our father to try making wine & the corporation has honestly took off. Both of us started out just in the basement of our house. As our corporation has grown, so has the amount of wine all of us make. I was forced to have a wine facility built though. I got the building put right on our dad’s land by the grapes. It works out good. My dad picks the grapes, & delivers them right to me. Right on the land all of us can add sugar, yeast & control sediment. The only issue I have encountered so far was Heating, Ventilation, & A/C. Getting heating & air for the building was not straightforward. Temperature control for wine is key, especially since all of us live in the north. Wine can’t get too chilly or it ruins the fermentation process. Because our weather is horrible, I needed a quality gas furnace & still a cooling unit. I finally found the solution to be a heat pump system. Buying from an actual Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier was too costly. Instead I just purchased 1 online & had it delivered to me. My father & I could not figure out the heat pump install. So I had to make a shady deal with a Heating, Ventilation, & A/C business for money to install the heat pump system. The guy installed it right by the front door. It looks terrible, but at least with have weather conditions control now.
