There are a number of wonderful, capricious paintings at the Bonny Doon Winery in Santa Cruz, Ca that shall be painted over when Randall Grahm finally shutters the doors. Just a few days ago an enormous crane arrived to carry away the just sold, one storey high, multi-thousand gallon oak storage tanks. The winery is winding down. Workers have more and more time for soccer breaks.
Mr. Graham has relocated to Washington State, very near the Red Mountain AVA, along the Columbia river, where, under the Pacific Rim brand, he will produce 120,000 cases of Riesling and 6000 cases of Chenin Blanc. His initial intent was to down-size.
The repainted facade will match the drab olive of the balance of the facility. The building itself will become host to a number of wineries and their tasting rooms. The project should wrap up sometime in the Spring of 2008.
