Lautenbach’s Orchard Ready to Expand

(Left to right) Neil Hardin, Erin Lautenbach, Bob Lautenbach, Carrie Lautenbach-Viste, and Kurt VandenHouten break ground for Orchard Country Winery and Market’s expansion project.

Lautenbach’s Orchard Country broke ground last month on an expansion project that includes additional retail and storage areas, as well as an indoor space for annual events and live music. This 4,952 square-foot addition will help sustain the continued growth of the business, along with offering new products and services to its visitors.

The architect for the expansion is Hardin Builders, Inc. and the general contractor is Van’s Lumber & Custom Builders, Inc. Orchard Country Winery & Market plans to remain open for most of the construction and invites visitors to stop in and watch the progress, which is set to be completed in the spring of 2015.

Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market, located at 9197 Hwy 42 in Fish Creek, is currently open Thursday – Monday with complimentary tasting from 10 am – 4 pm. For more information call 866.946.3263 or visit
