Document Description
Major Modification Use Permit to permit the expansion of an existing 10,000 gallon winery to 20,000 gallons per year and to allow the expansion of two winery buildings and the construction of two new winery buildings, totaling 7,319 sq. ft. in area. The request also includes hosted daily tours and tastings by appointment only for a maximum of 32 persons per day, and a Marketing Program to permit four (4) events per year with a maximum of 20 guests, two (2) events per year with a maximum of 50 guests, one (1) event per year with a maximum of 60 guests, and one event per year with a maximum of 100 guests. Proposed hours of operation, 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM (production hours, except during harvest) and 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (visitation hours), 7 days a week. A Variance application (P15-00341) is requested to allow construction of the proposed hospitality building and bathroom building and expansion of the existing winery building approx. 100 feet within the 300 foot winery setback from the private driveway from Spring Mountain Road which serves on additional parcel to the north of the subject site. The Variance is also required to permit the proposed barrel barn and case goods storage building approx. 50 feet within the 300 foot winery setback and to permit the tank barn and covered crush pad approx. 25 feet within the 300 foot winery setback. The project also includes a request for an exception to the Napa County Road and Street Standards (RSS). The request proposes an exception to the State Responsibility Area Fire Safe Regulations to allow a reduced roadway width of a single traffic lane with a minimum paved width of 12 feet because of unique features of the natural environment which includes steep slopes and mature trees. This segment totals approx. 250 feet in length. The project also requests an exception to allow an average longitudinal slope of 18 percent for a 50 foot section of roadway. The Napa County RSS require two ten foot wide traffic lanes and permit a maximum longitudinal slope of 16 percent.
