Rathfinny Wine Estate

Progress on the Winery building…

British workers often get branded as lazy and slow, well not this lot. The steel frame arrived last Saturday and they got straight to work and started bolting it together over the weekend.

By Monday the structure was really beginning to take shape.

I should explain that the building has essentially two floors. With office space, a staff room, technical tasting room and a lab on what could be discribed as a third floor at the rear.

The presses will hang from the first floor above what will be the fermentation area, which will have a series of settling and fermentation tanks in it. The first floor will provide a dry goods storage area, temporary barrel store and tasting room opening onto a balcony which runs along the south side of the building.

The link below, to a video, put together by Martin Swatton who designed the winery has been posted on youtube, it will give you a good idea of what it will look like:

By the way we have recently started posting some of our resident photographer, Viv Blakey’s, superb pictures:  http://www.rathfinnyestate.com/gallery/

Looking good….
