GREEN BAY - There was a wine breaking ceremony in downtown Green Bay Thursday.
Captain's Walk Winery is expanding their current building by adding a sunroom.
The 20 x 35 foot room will become the main tasting area and will allow for more visitors.
The addition will feature a 111-year-old oak bar, which was originally from the T. Williams Saloon in Algoma.
Owners and community leaders say they're excited about the expansion.
"I'm really glad we chose downtown. I don't think we would have nearly received as much support if we would have chosen another area," said Brad Schmiling, co-owner of Captain's Walk Winery.
"Its small businesses that we really want to grow and prosper here, and that's what's happening here today," said Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt.
Schmiling says he hopes to have the new addition open by May.
