Ground Broken at LMR Winery & Farmstead Site

Yesterday was a major milestone for us.

Ground Breaking at White Hall NuseryFirst, we broke ground at the site of our new tasting room and offices - part of the LMR Winery & Farmstead project in St. Helena.

Laddie, Chris, and I were joined by Sheamus Feeley (our executive chef), Kevin Twohey (Whiting Nursery), and Frank Borges and Tony Gouveia (Borges Construction).

The crew began site preparation yesterday morning on the historic Logan/Ives House which will be the new home to our tasting room. Removal of the asbestos shingles will start on Monday. And, in about two weeks the house will be raised four feet in the air so that we can rebuild the foundation under it!

Second, last night we had a very informal reception for our staff and the members of our extended team who have worked so hard to get this project moving so quickly.

LMR wines flowed and Sheamus Feeley prepared LMR grass-fed beef meatballs with tomato-ginger marmalade, "Sheamus-made" ricotta with LMR Rutherford Gardens apple butter, LMR deviled eggs with crispy bacon, and LMR grass-fed beef tartare with chive blossoms and radishes. 

What a treat!

Hanging the Farmstead BannerWe capped off the evening with a ceremony as we hung a banner announcing our project on the fence along Main Street.
