Raymond Winery and Vineyards has agreed to delay its expansion project for another month after a meeting this week with planners so more analysis could be done on the potential traffic impacts.

The winery had asked for an increase in visitation of 100 people on weekend days, from the 400 people permitted currently, but ultimately dropped the request, said Tom Blackwood, director of retail operations for Raymond. That comes on the heels of the winery dropping its proposal to double production, from 750,000 gallons to 1.5 million, which the commissioners heard two years ago but didn’t act on.

The winery is still pursuing a new marketing plan, and Blackwood said it’s due to return to the Planning Commission Aug. 20.

    Can't these people be content with what they have?

    Why do they have to constantly grow grow grow?

    Is money THAT addicting?

    About 30 people spoke AGAINST approving this and this is the best that "staff" could come up with? A major story and this is it? You don't even find it interesting that most of what they are applying for they have already been doing illegally? So this exercise is just to make the permit fit the illegal action on the ground.
    I do note that you gave the bad boy Boisset and Gallo lots of coverage leading up to the hearing - and now you have nothing to say? Funny how that works, sin't it?
    C'mon Napa Register - give us something more interesting to wrap our fish in.
