Changes are coming to the Funk Zone. Oreana Winery has been sold to an LA-based winery called Agua Dulce and they have submitted plans to change half of the building into a tasting room for that brand. The property next door, that once was a fish drying business, has been purchased by Melville Winery for what one has to assume will be a tasting room as well.
