Document Description
The proposed project is a request for the approval of a Development Plan for a new 13,960 sf Tier II winery. The proposed project includes the demolition of approximately 6,003 sf of existing development. The existing 800 sf Alma Rosa tasting room would be converted to an agricultural storage building. No winery activities would occur within this building, and it would not be open to the public. Wine production would be limited to a maximum of 9,500 cases annually. The wine produced onsite would come from grapes grown on the property from approximately 30 acres of existing vineyard, an additional 55 acres planned for installation in the future, and other sites in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties in accordance with County ordinance requirements. Winery operations occurring within the winery production building would include on-site crushing, fermentation, barrel storage, and bottling. Hours of operation for the winery would be 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except during crush activities when the winery operation hours are extended to include early morning and evening hours, 7 days per week. A total of 4 full time employees (2 during annual crush activities) would be employed onsite for wine production.
