The city is asking Niagara County for $100,000 to help launch a Wine Emporium on
Canal Street.On behalf of Beautiful Visions LLC, the city earlier this month filed an application for a Niagara River Greenway grant to complete the purchase and furnishing of 79 Canal St.
Beautiful Visions, a separate company by J. Fitzgerald Group partners Jack Martin and Carmel Cerullo-Beiter, would rent the building to Margo Bittner’s Appleton Creek Winery LLC as a satellite winery.According to Martin, the Wine Emporium would sell all Niagara County-produced wines and a host of other locally grown and created goods.
His ambitious vision has the emporium serving both tourists and residents,
jump starting redevelopment of the long-dormant Canal Street block and
strengthening Niagara agribusiness all at once....
Good luck. I'd love to see this come to fruition.
