The owners of St. Jorge Winery suddenly withdrew their controversial application to expand activities on their property on Tuesday, just before the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors was to consider whether they should be allowed to proceed.
Vernon and Jenise Vierra agreed to withdraw the application that had numerous neighbors in western Acampo up in arms over the potential for parties and loud music at the winery, according to Stockton attorney Mike Hakeem, who represents the Vierras.
