Napa Adopts New Rules For Non-Compliant Wineries

Dec 6, 2018

(WB) - Napa County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday adopted new rules to help wineries become compliant with the provisions of their permits. The resolution was approved over objections from environmentalists and others who called the efforts a “whitewash”

Non-compliant wineries – and property owners – have until 2 p.m. March 29 to apply for permits to remedy one or more code violations, according to the resolution the Board of Supervisors approved Tuesday. 
The vote was 4-0. 

“I’m saying this is step one. I’m saying there are many other steps that will come from this and we’ve got to start somewhere,” Supervisor Belia Ramos said. “This is the starting point.”

She spoke after opponents asked for more time, questioning whether the county would comply with California’s environmental laws as it seeks to bring wineries into compliance and other issues.
