The Plans for Dan Aykroyd's Winery
Last year, when Dan Aykroyd announced his first wine-making adventure he hinted that there was more to come. And earlier this month when it was announced that he was participating in the first Niagara wine auction, it seemed that a big announcement was imminent. Sure enough, Diamond Estates Wines & Spirits has announced that they are building The Dan Aykroyd Winery. The project is ambitious. A $12-million, 45,000-square-foot winery will be built off the QEW highway where the company's Birchwood Estate winery is currently located. The winery will also showcase some of Aykroyd's movie and television memorabilia. Groundbreaking should be this fall with the winery being operational for a fall 2008 harvest. A couple more views of what looks to be a rather substantial undertaking after the jump.
