Napa County planners OK small, remote winery
A new, small winery is to be located in a converted barn at the end of a one-lane, private road far from the Napa Valley wine country hub.
The Morgan family won county Planning Commission approval to establish Shed Creek Winery. Their 287-acre property is in Gordon Valley along the county’s southeast corner, far more easily reached from Suisun Valley in Solano County than from the Napa Valley.
Shed Creek Winery will be able to produce 5,000 gallons annually and have up to 15 visitors daily. It will have 10 annual marketing events for up to 30 people apiece and one for up to 100 people.
“It’s a very lovely, remote property,” Commissioner Terry Scott said at the Nov. 15 hearing. “It’s on the very edge of our county. I hope more people have an opportunity to really appreciate the beauty it provides and the unique environment that exists there.”
