Today we added to our cellar 2 new 1500 gallon stainless steel Vance tanks. We joked along the way that if we did this everyday (move giant tanks into a building) that we’d be really good at it. Turns out we were pretty good anyway and they are shiny, sound and without dents, inside. And yes,we understand they are not as sexy as barrels, but we are really happy to be supporting local business (Vance Metal Fabricators is located in Geneva, NY at the top of Seneca Lake). When we grow as a wine region there is real and legitimate regional growth as well. Seeing companies like Vance grow alongside the wineries is great. It’s the kind of growth we want. Gas storage on Seneca Lake, on the other hand, is NOT the kind of growth we want.
