JUST HOW BIG IS THE PERMITTED PROJECT?
100,000 gallons of wine per year (largest production capacity of all post-WDO, that is, since 1990, hillside wineries)
33,424 square feet of caves ((3rd largest of all hillside wineries, and 5,000 square feet larger than an average Best Buy retailer))
14,575 visitors a year (largest ever by 3x when considering the Project’s location on a dead-end road)
Use of about 15,200 gallons of water a day (largest ever by 3x when considering the Project’s location on a dead-end road)
Increase of 40,000 car trips a year on the Soda Canyon Road, a road that in the three-year period from 2014-2016 experienced 639 emergency incidents (drunk driving incidents, fires, vehicle collisions, etc.) as reported by the Napa Sheriff’s Department, CHP, and CalFire.
