LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A century-old building on Main Street in Little Rock is getting a face lift and what's on tap for the inside is a first for the area.
A winemaker from California, Margie Raimondo's love of wine is one that can be traced back decades.
"My grandfather actually started making wine in Italy and came to the United States and passed on the tradition of making wine to my uncle first and now I'm the third generation winemaker for Raimondo," said Margie Raimondo.
Now, she's bringing that passion and Italian flair to Main Street, with plans of opening the area's first winery on the bottom floor of the historic Fulk Building, the former home of the Arkansas Democrat.
"I've been watching the food renaissance here in Little Rock from afar and I really just been thinking that I really wanted to be apart of it," said Raimondo.
