Soaring Wings Vineyard: Damage Repairs From June 16th Storm Nearing Final Stages
June 16th storms ravaged Sarpy County and caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages to Soaring Wings Vineyard’s (www.soaringwingswine.com) buildings and vineyard. The loss of its newly-expanded stage was a particularly hard blow. Finally, a new chapter begins.
With much of the necessary repair work done, most notably the replacement of damaged steel on the exteriors of the buildings, it was time to break ground on the new stage. A groundbreaking ceremony with Sarpy County Chamber officials and local area officials was held to commemorate the occasion on December 11th.
The new stage has been designed to work with the floor of the old stage and wrap around it so as to minimize costs. This new design, by Jason Heinze of Schemmer, will actually improve upon the aesthetics of the old stage in many ways.
Mike Mathews of All Purpose Construction has been managing the construction and repair projects.
“We missed having our stage available for the prime summer season this past year,” said Jim Shaw, owner of Soaring Wings, “but look forward to having an improved stage for the coming years.”
