Clos-Solene Winery Expansion / Conditional Use Permit / DRC2021-00025
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
A request by Solene Vineyard LLC for a Conditional Use Permit (DRC2021-00025) to allow the phased development of a 27,248-square-foot winery facility, including a 19,101-square-foot underground wine cave system with a 3,505-square-foot exterior covered work area and a 4,642-square-foot administrative building and tasting room with 3,117 square feet of interior space and 1,525 square feet of exterior space. The winery would increase the annual case production from 5,000 cases per year to a maximum of 10,000 cases per year. The project includes a request for a modification of the County of San Luis Obispo Land Use Ordinance (LUO) Section 22.30.070.D.2.d.(1) setback standards that require a 200-foot setback from each property line to allow the underground wine cave system to be set back 34 feet and 5 inches from the northern property line and the administration building and tasting room to be set back a minimum of 41 feet and 4 inches from the southern property line. This project would result in approximately 2.6 acres of ground disturbance on a 26.69-acre parcel including 14,900 cubic yards of cut and 12,200 cubic yards of fill, to be balances on-site (difference accounts for 15% soil shrinkage).
