And as food producers suffer, wine industry uses 60% of ag water in a typical year….save the water for food!
Finally some sanity: PD EDITORIAL Place some limits on disruptive winery events
Excerpt: One commenter summed up residents’ frustration and what they thought the county should do about it, writing, “Please STOP permitting winery events in Sonoma County. Actually, STOP permitting any more wineries!”
EXCERPT: Some constraints will not ruin the industry. The draft ordinance, which will be discussed Thursday by the Sonoma County Planning Commission, is modeled on a Napa County ordinance. It would limit hours for tasting rooms and parties, restrict what sorts of food service would be allowed and require setbacks for music from neighboring properties.
