Join Diane G. Kindermann and Brian Russell of Abbott & Kindermann, LLP, in a new class which will provide the attendee with current issues and solutions to consider when analyzing the feasibility of a winery or vineyard property. This half day program will cover how local, state and federal laws could restrict or enhance your intended uses. For example, the class will provide an overview on how the California Environmental Quality Act, the Napa County General Plan, and the Napa County Winery Definition Ordinance govern the permitting process.  Insight into California water law, the Endangered Species Acts, and how cultural resources could impact your plans for your land will also be included.  Abbott & Kindermann, LLP will provide strategies and recommendations for achieving your desired entitlements, working with local planning staff and managing potential opponents to your project.  Finally, this class will identify shifting patterns of regulations applicable to vineyards and winery approvals to anticipate in the upcoming years.
