Mitigated Negative Declaration

Proposal:

Kanzler Vineyards, LLC proposes to construct a new 2,910 square foot winery on a previously developed site to produce a maximum of 5,000 cases of wine a year. The project would also construct a hospitality/administration building 1,780 square feet in size with a kitchen, offices, wine tasting rooms/areas, restrooms, a porch and a patio. Wine tasting would be by appointment only with a maximum of 10 guests per day. The project also requests 17 agricultural promotional events per year, including 6 winemaker meals with 25 guests, 4 events with 50 guests and 7 events with 150 guests. Two of the proposed 150-guest events would be third party private events. Participation in industry-wide events is not requested. The 20.57 acre property contains an existing 14.5 acre vineyard, which would provide most of the grapes for the winery, and a two-story residence that also functions as a farmstay rental for up to eight residential guests.
