Farm Bureau makes up with Viaggio
Kent Raverty, owner of Viaggio Winery in Acampo, discussed the Williamson Act and related issues last week with Phil Brumley, president of the San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation. Brumley said he has no issues with Viaggio as long as it complies with the county's winery ordinance. Viaggio is under investigation for allegedly violating the Williamson Act, a state program designed to preserve agriculture in California. (Dan Evans/News-Sentinel)

The president of the San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation said it
appears that a large Acampo winery doesn't violate California's
Williamson Act after all.
Farm Bureau President Phil Brumley said on Monday as long as
Raverty complies with San Joaquin County's winery ordinance, he no
longer has an issue with Viaggio Winery in Acampo.
