is free and saves on electricity. Skylights help by reducing electrical
needs, which in turn cuts down on global warming. In several sections of the winery,
including the laboratory, fermentation room and tasting room skylights have been installed for decades. In our new roof over the barrel aging area
of the winery, two skylights were recently installed.
the 62 year old cedar shingle-roof was replaced and four large skylights were installed. These skylights will provide
free and natural lighting for the cellar; while cutting down significatly
on the electrical needs in the main wine cellar.
This is good
for our monthly bills and for the environment.
