The issues raised by the Mountain Peak Project represent one instance of a trend happening across the County. This is not just happening to the NIMBY's on Soda Canyon Road. Though the specific impacts are different for each situation and those impacts become the battleground, all of these projects are there, in peoples backyards, because of the 2010 loosening of tourism restrictions in the WDO. Public opinion is just as important as the lawyers and consultants that residents must hire in their defense. You are encouraged to voice your concerns to the media and our government officials.

Letters to the Editor

There are many winery projects in the County's pipeline. Our resource page lists several articles in the Napa Valley Register and the Yountville Sun relating to these current projects. Responding to them with letters to the editor is a cathartic and sometimes effective way to deal with the fears in our own neighborhood.

Letters to the editor may be sent to the Napa Valley Register at:
and to the Yountville Sun via email to Sharon Stensaas at
