Demolition of an Old Building at Dumas Station - January 31, 2014
Jay, our winemaker, owns the old buildings next to our winery, and decided it was time for one of them to come down. The result yielded not only a beautiful view, but some beautiful old timber for future projects. With the value of the salvage material, the project nearly paid for itself.

We had planed to pull the "bones" of the building down with a tractor the following morning, but we arrived to find that Mother Nature had done the work for us.
