Land Trust of Napa County Announces Agreement to Purchase Walt Ranch

Over the years, Wine and Water Watch has published a number of articles about the proposed Walt Ranch vineyard conversion, which would have destroyed more than 300 acres of riparian, oak and native grassland habitat for vineyards and more than 14,000 large trees in an area spread out over the ranch’s 2300 acres.

In early January 2023, the Land Trust of Napa County and the Hall family announced that the Land Trust will acquire the entire 2300-acre Walt Ranch property. This news indeed bodes well for the new year!
