Document Description
Establish and operate a 20,000-gallon per year winery and associated infrastructure with retail sales and visitors by appointment on a 62.92-acre parcel. Winery operations will be conducted within an existing historic winery building having two levels totaling approximately 2,520 square feet of usable floor area and +/-6,110 square feet of caves for barrel storage, occupying approximately 12,080 total square feet (+/-0.44%) of the parcel. The floor area devoted to each separate use includes 1,600 square feet for fermentation and barrel storage, 460 square feet for offices, 920 square feet for equipment storage, 1,600 square feet for 2nd story storage area and a 3,600 suqare feet concrete crush pad. The project includes structural modifications to the existing structure to accommodate the proposed winery operations. The winery structure is considered historically significant and will require design considerations to limit the change in character to less than significant levels. Cave spoils generated from excavation will be crushed and applied to roads on-site as road base.
