One wonders whether applications for permits that involve water are primarily for the vineyards, or for the appropriation of the water rights.

Vines and grapes have a value; but if we're facing a future of limited water supplies, and there is no current regulation of well water, the water itself might be more valuable than the grapes.

When water is in exceedingly short supply, what's it worth?

Your thoughts?
