On Thursday, the Esopus Town Planning Board gave conditional approval to the site plan for the Shier Winery. I must thank surveyor and map creator Bert Winne, from Ashokan, New York. Bert went out of his way to survey the property for a reduced rate and build a great map complete with 10 foot interval topographical lines. A public hearing is scheduled for October 27th. If there are no objections from the townfolk, it will be on to the New York State Liquor Authority to seek approval on the Farm Winery License.
