SVCAC looks at new wine facility



At its March 22 meeting, the Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC) will review a proposal for a new 40,000-square-foot wine production facility within the Carneros Business Park in Sonoma.

The use permit application, filed by Sonoma-based New Komiza LLC, envisions producing 150,000 cases of wine annually, along with associated winery operations such as crushing, aging and storing wine in tanks, bottling, and product case storage. No events are being requested with the use permit, though the applicant said it did reserve the right to apply for the ability to participate in industry-wide events through a separate permit process.

The parcel addresses are 1670 and 1690 Carneros Meadow Lane in Sonoma. Surrounding properties consist of commercial warehousing buildings and Sonoma Skypark Airport. The project site is currently undeveloped and accessed from Eighth Street East through the Carneros Business Park.

The names registered with New Komiza LLC are brothers Andrew and Adam Mariani, who run Scribe Winery in Sonoma.

The SVCAC reviews development proposals in Sonoma Valley and the city of Sonoma, and makes recommendations to the appropriate county and city planning officials. The panel meets the third Wednesday of each month, 6:30 p.m., in the community room of the Sonoma Police Department, 177 First Street West.

For more information about the SVCAC, contact Pat Gilardi, District Director to Supervisor Susan Gorin, at pat.gilardi@sonoma.county.org.
