  • Boutique winery design & build: Mollydooker Wines McLaren Vale

    Purchasing a winery in the second half of a year and requiring changes by Vintage can be a challenge. Fortunately our client knew very well the process they wanted  when it came to winemaking. Our task was to design and incorporate their method, needs and capacity into the existing winery building. This was achieved for Vintage 2008 with much hard work from the assembled team, and  fortunately the Vintage was a great success. The following year, Vintage ...

  • Supply of 33kV, 3 phase power to winery: Clare Valley

    This project had become necessary to satisfy several conflicting demands. Firstly there was the potential for increased power requirement by the winery, and secondly there was the potential for increased power requirement by expansion of the local town of Auburn. The cost to expand the local substation was significant so in conjunction with ETSA Planners a solution was raised to bring power to the winery direct from the 33kVA distributor line. Because of the significant savings to the ...
