Document Description
The Upper Range Vineyard Project - Rodgers Property would involve installing erosion control features and practicing erosion control measures for a new approximately 161- acre vineyard on privately owned properties in Napa County, California. The entire project site is comprised of seven parcels totaling approximately 678 acres. Agricultural uses are within the County's "right to farm" policy. However, because the project would involve earthmoving activities on slopes greater than 5%, approval of the Erosion Control Plan (#02-454=ECPA) by the County of Napa is considered "discretionary". This makes it subject to review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The project site is located in the hills between the Silverado Trail and Lake Hennessey, about 2 miles northeast of Rutherford and 13 miles north of the City of Napa. The erosion control measures would be implemented in the proposed vineyard area, which will cover 161 acres (approximately 24 percent of the total 678 acres), while existing vegetation will remain on 517 acres (approximately 76 percent of the 678 acres). The property is currently grazed by cattle, which would continue with the proposed project.
