Project Profile – Bonobo Winery

When it comes to wineries, comfort can be dramatically different from room to room. This was a challenge for brothers Todd and Carter Oosterhouse, the latter of shows like TLC’s “Trading Spaces” and HGTV’s “Carter Can.” The Oosterhouses selected our zoned comfort solutions to condition a variety of spaces at their new Bonobo Winery in Traverse City, Michigan, including the barrel room, office space and hallways. Todd noted that, “Our winemaker likes to keep everything cold, so it’s been helpful that the units maintain the desired temperature for us. You can raise the temperature in individual offices, though, if someone wants it warmer. Not everyone likes it so cold!” Our zoned comfort solutions have made handling each of Bonobo’s zones possible.

In conceiving, opening and running the winery, the Oosterhouse brothers’ focus beyond just making Bonobo a pleasant destination for visitors was “to be as energy-conscious as possible through the whole project,” said Todd. This concern was not just a product of the brothers’ upbringing, but being in environmentally conscious California. Todd, Carter and Carter’s wife, Amy Smart, fully-embrace the environmental goals of their home state, so “mini-splits just made sense.”

Pat Harrison, estimator, Team Bob’s Heating Cooling Plumbing, Traverse City, recommended our system to meet the Oosterhouses’ needs, because he knew that it would be reliable. Harrison said, “Mitsubishi [Electric] product is our No. 1 product for split systems. The reason is performance – fewer callbacks.” Todd agreed, saying, “The Mitsubishi [Electric] system was right in line with our energy-conscious goals. So we went for it. And, happy to say, the installation was pretty seamless.”
