This application proposes a modification to use permit Pl3-00261 approved in 2014 which allowed the construction of 13,200 sq. ft. of caves, an enlargement of the existing 4,400 sq. ft. winery to 4,780 sq. ft. of production area, 1,536 sq. ft. of accessory space, and a 710 sq. ft. covered work area. The total authorized square footage is 20,225 sq. ft. The additions and improvements to the winery building have been completed, including 6,000 sq. ft. of the 13,200 sq. ft. of approved caves. Thus, 7,200 sq. ft. of the approved caves have yet to be completed.
This application proposes to exchange 5, 710 sq. ft. of the remaining unconstructed cave area for a new free standing 5,710 sq. ft. production building. This building will be located in an area currently occupied by a tennis court on the opposite side of the stream bisecting the property. The new production building will include 5,100 sq. ft. of barrel storage, and 610 sq. ft. of mechanical equipment, lab/break kitchen and a small office and restroom for the exclusive use of winery employees. No visitation or wine tasting is proposed in the new building. In addition to the 5,710 sq. ft. of conditioned space, there will also be a 540 sq. ft. fenced/screened outdoor yard for additional mechanical equipment and trash storage. The building will be earth toned to blend in with existing development and vegetation on the property.
