Napa Controversies

2009_07_napasign.jpgWine Country is aflutter with all kinds of drama lately. See, with the economy wreaking havoc, wineries want the county to eliminate a 20-year-old law requiring many local wineries to host tours and tastings by appointment only, but they stopped short of supporting weddings: "Three of the four major wine industry groups in Napa Valley are pushing back against a plan to boost the local economy by opening up Napa County wineries to weddings and corporate retreats." The board of supes will take up the issue next month, at which point there will be more arguing. [St Helena Star]
