Modification of the existing entitlements allowing the operation of Raymond Vineyard and Cellars' winery (Raymond Winery) with visitation and marketing events at 849 Zinfandel Lane, south of the city of St. Helena. The modification consists of operational changes that include: 1) addition of the Ticen Ranch property, located at 1584 St. Helena Highway, into Raymond Winery operations, with conversion of the Ticen Ranch residence and barn into winery visitation and administration space; 2) extension of winery operating hours until 11:00 P.M. during harvest (August through Nov.) and visitation hours until 6:30 p.m. year round; 3) allowance for on-site consumption of wine in specified areas on the properties; and 4) allowance for up to half of Raymond Winery's currently permitted, annual marketing events to be held outdoors.
Project includes modifications to the development of the Raymond Winery and Ticen Ranch parcels that include a new, private access road to the Raymond Winery from St. Helena Highway across the Ticen Ranch Parcel,, as well as construction of a vineyard viewing platform, 61 new parking stalls between the two existing parcels, improvements to the existing sanitary wastewater treatment system, and installation of aboveground water storage tanks. the modification also legitimizes an existing, noncompliant number of employees (go full-time, part-time and seasonal) and additional site modifications and conversions of building use that are already in place but that were completed without benefit of County permit approvals.
The properties at 849 Zinfandel Lane and 1484 St. Helena Highway (APN No. 030-270-013 and 030-270-012, respectively) are under common ownership, have a General Plan land use designation of Agricultural Resource (AR) and are located in the Agricultural Preserve (AP) District.
