Document Description
The Rancho Guejito Wine Tasting Facility and Event Center Major Use Permit (MUP) is for the expansion of an existing Small Winery permit to include a new wine tasting facility and an event center along with associated parking lots, outdoor areas, water storage tanks for fire protection, and storm water treatment facilities. The new 4,283-square-foot wine tasting facility would include a wine bar and seating area, offices, restrooms, merchandise display areas, wine storage and refrigeration, a commercial kitchen, and food storage area. Outdoor areas would include a 1,500-square-foot covered patio and lawn area for events. The new event center would include two buildings; a 1,519-square-foot event logistics and lounge suite area and a 3,700 square foot banquet barn. While the project impact footprint is limited to an approximately 5.6-acre area in the southern portion of the MUP boundary, the MUP would specify allowed activities within the remainder of the MUP area, including hayrides, picnicking, or related uses associated with the wine tasting operations. The project site is located at 17224 San Pasqual Valley Road, in the North County Metro Subregional Plan within unincorporated San Diego County. The site is subject to the General Plan Rural Lands Regional Category, Rural Lands 40 (RL-40) Land Use Designation. Zoning for the site is A70 (Limited Agriculture).
