Here is the new update for our loyal costumers, friends and followers
We finally finished the concret foundations for our 40’ stainless steel containers last week, now it's time to move them onto the concret and lock them down, so they will stay there for next 30+ year without blowing away or rolling down the hill.
The crane from Whitianga based coast2coast building service (http://coast2coastbuildingservices.co.nz/) is coming this Thursday to move the containers onto the desired positions.
Thanks to the stainless steel interiour, the insulation and the t-section floor, these ex-refridgerating container are just perfect for winemaking, tea production and food preperation. The Winemaking will move into two of the containers. Another container on top will be used for the tea manufacturing. One more containers will be used as a kitchen and the last one will serve as a bar and contain sanitary facilities. And thats pretty much our temporary setup.
We tought moving from one site to another just 250m up the road, after being a well established business for over 30 years - a coromandel Icon - is a piece of cake. But due to weather delays, wrong advises and the odd moaner on the fence, everthing takes a little longer than expected. So - nearly a year after starting to relocate from the old building - we are still being held up and not open. We also got stopped from selling our products from a temorary stall, that's why we put up a give little page:
Donate via Givealittle
All donations will go to pay the fees and charges and costs to get open again at Purangi and hang on to the Winecellar in Auckland K'Road, so you can have a corner to call your own.
Please also check out the update page on our givalittle page. We always try to keep on updating what goal we've got and what the donated money will be used for exactly.
We now also stock our Aged Port, Lemon Gin and Limoncello at the Hahie and Cooks Beach Liquor stores. Get your Purangi favorites for yourself or as a Christmas present at either of the stores. We are also working on stocking our products in a Liquor Store in Auckland - watch this page.
Our gardens, ordchads and vinyard love the spring time. With the warmer temperatures and the longer days they are cranking. Lots to do on a 60acre farm to keep us busy: Mowing, weeding, trimming, taping, planting, and so so much more...
That's it for now from our update. If you feel like you want to support the Purangi Winery and actively help us to reach our common goal, to reopening as soon as possible, please give a few dollars on the givalittle page. We also highly appreciate plants und rocks Kohas :)
