Abacela's new Vine and Wine center nears completion
Reported by: David Anderson
ROSEBURG (KMTR) They're calling it Abacela's Vine and Wine Center, a four thousand square foot tasting room and wine vault right in the middle of the vineyard. Right now it's under construction, but they say the new place will offer more space for tasting and an interactive experience.
In it, they'll hold presentations on how wine is made from start to finish. Abacela says their unique location with the addition of the new Vine and Wine Center create a more comprehensive package for those looking to learn more about the wine they make.
“It's difficult to find a place were they grow grapes that grow in a fairly cool-ish climate with places that really need to be quite warm. Now we can show all of that right here so you can taste it in your glass and see it with your eyes.
The building will be green as well. It uses a geothermal heating system that heats the room from the ground up. In the summer high windows let heat escape without having to turn on a fan or air conditioning.
The new building will even feature a tunnel where vintage wine can be stored and tasted. Several private tasting rooms will also be added. The center will host a grand opening Saturday may 14th.For more information on the event you can visit www.Abacela.com.
