My father and I decided that every one 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 and the corporation has really 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 every one 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, and delivers them right to me. Right on the land every one of us can add sugar, yeast and control sediment. The only issue I have encountered so far was Heating and A/C. Getting heating and air for the building was not simple. Temperature control for wine is key, especially since every one of us live in the north. Wine can’t get too frigid or it ruins the fermentation process. Because our weather is horrible, I needed a quality oil furnace and still a cooling unit. I finally found the solution to be a heat pump system. Buying from an actual Heating and A/C supplier was too costly. Instead I just bought 1 online and had it delivered to me. My father and I could not figure out the heat pump install. So I had to make a shady deal with a Heating and A/C corporation for currency to install the heat pump system. The girl installed it right by the front door. It looks terrible, but at least with have climate control now.
