You can’t make this shit up.
This morning at a press conference, Diamond Estates Wines and Spirits Ltd. announced their plans to build a $12-million, 45,000 square-foot Dan Aykroyd Winery, just off the QEW in Beamsville, Ontario.
Done by Moriyama + Teshima Architects, the winery “will pay tribute to the region’s terroir and to Dan Aykroyd’s 30-plus years of work in film and television by showcasing some of his favourite memorabilia throughout the building.” Wait, does that mean that there’ll be a Ghostbusters room?
In addition to the winery, which’ll be in operation in time for harvest season in 2008, the first two of many “Dan Aykroyd Discovery Series” wines were debuted. The Chardonnay ($14.95) and Cabernet Merlot ($16.95) blends (click their names to see the pictures) are now available at the LCBO.
God help us.
