Proprietor, Mike Urban says he has big plans for the new space that if five times the size of their previous home on Bay Avenue on downtown’s Grapes to Grains trail that includes urban wineries and breweries.

The lounge, where they will serve cocktails and permanent retail store are under construction but, Urban says he is hoping for it to be completed by spring, just in time for peak wine tourist season.

“It gives us a chance to be on Westside Wine Trail with all big boys on this side and right on the highway so everyone will see us. Where we were we had no visibility, so this will be huge, it will be like night and day for us,” he said.

Urban says he is excited to expand his business and serve his dill pickle infused vodka and ‘Urban Burban’ along the wine trail, bringing a new vibe to the distillery and the old Sears building they are transforming into a full tasting experience.
