Document Description
The project consists of a Combined District Development Permit including a: 1) A Use Permit for a 3,330sf Agricultural Processing Plant for a winery producing up to 5,000 cases per year, and a 240 sf equipment storage building; 2) A Use Permit for the removal of 9 protected oak trees; 3) A Use Permit for Development on slopes in excess of 30%; 4) An Administrative Permit for Development in a Site Plan District; and 5) Design Approval. Also included is a 3,050 sf wine storage cave. Grading for site improvements and the wine cave is ~1,980 cubic yards cut and 1,980 cubic yards fill, to be balanced on-site. Access to the site is from Holman Road off Carmel Valley Road, northeast of Carmel Valley village. Trucks will travel east on Carmel Valley Road, then turn left onto Holman Road and access is from an existing dirt ranch road. Required parking spaces are located adjacent to the winery barn. The proposed winery operation will not be open to the public and the project does not propose to increase the number of special events currently held at the ranch. Water to the Ranch and winery is provided by an existing private well with a small water system and an on-site water treatment system. New water tanks and the new on-site water treatment system were recently installed to provide storage capacity for fire suppression, as well as potable water storage.
