Custom Crush Capacity

I have a wine industry contact who is in the process of completing construction of a new processing facility. There will be excess processing capacity as the facility gets activated, so if you know of any small producer that will need some additional "custom crush" capacity in a state of the art facility located in the Sonoma Valley.  Message me if interested. Thanks
