Greenville County kept saying no, no, no, and then they said yes!
Construction set to commence immediately!
Josh and Deb Jones purchased City Scape Winery back in 2015. The vineyard consisted of 1.5 acres under vine and a 620 square foot tasting room.
At that time, they were the youngest winery owners in the Southeast, possibly in the country.
The existing small tasting room only had a few small tables and the current production facility only 1400 square feet.
Over the last 6 years business at the Winery has continued to flourish. An outdoor patio was added, along with two large outdoor event style tents for covered seating.
Four years in the planning, this major expansion has broken ground in the small community of Pelzer, in Southern Greenville County, South Carolina.
Owners Josh and Deb Jones visited approximately 50 wineries in Napa and over 20 countries in their research for the best winery design and practices.
The new building will consist of 10,620 square feet, split between two levels. The upper level for the 5,000 plus square feet tasting room, and the lower level of 5,000 square feet for the production facility.
The tasting room level will include a back deck overlooking a newly planted vineyard.
With 1.5 acres currently under vine, the new lower vineyard will consist of an additional acre under vine.
The new 5,000 sq. ft. production facility will allow for significant growth in wine production. City Scape currently produces approximately 6,000 cases a year.
The County mandated a retaining pond be installed, so in true City Scape non-traditional style the pond will be completed in the shape of a wine glass.
Josh Jones mused, “so when Google Earth updates, and we look down at City Scape Winery there will be our retaining pond in the shape of a wine glass.”
Anticipated completion in late Fall of 2021.
A Grand Opening is tentatively scheduled for mid-December of 2021.
As Jones excitedly exclaimed, “there’s nothing else like it in Greenville County!”
