With one county supervisor absent from Tuesday’s meeting, the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors was unable to decide whether to grant a Lodi woman permission to open a small winery.

The board reached a 2-2 decision after hearing from Andrea Maley, who appealed the county Planning Commission’s ruling to deny her permits to open a winery.

    I encourage Supervisor Bestolorides to visit Macchia Winery in Acampo, which also had its humble beginnings in a residential home. That home is now their tasting room, and they have expanded their facility to be a fabulous location to enjoy their wines.

    It amazes me how politicians such as this kill the entrepreneurial spirit of those that want to live the American dream .. to take their skills and talents and try to make a business for themselves that employ people in good jobs.

    Absolutely ridiculous to me!

    Wineries like V.Sattui in Napa Valley sell 100% of their wines AT THEIR WINERY IN NAPA. They get people to their winery by having excellent events and opportunities for customers to visit the winery to do more than just buy the wine (deli, events, picnic areas, etc).
