I am writing to comment on the recent article concerning the Viaggio Winery. Let me first confess I know nothing about the Williamson Act and all the legal mumbo jumbo it is sure to include.

What I do know is that I recently had the privilege of attending a customer appreciation event held at the Viaggio, hosted by Delta Blood Bank. My reasons for attending were quite selfish. I wanted to see the winery I had heard so much about and hopefully visit with some friends.

I was not disappointed. It is in a breathtaking location along the river, its is extremely well maintained and fits very well among the surrounding vineyards.

It would be a shame to see the Viaggio not able to host the events that their customers choose to have there. Think of the workers it would affect: security personnel, parking attendants, food and drink servers, caterers, florists and others. In this economy, why would anyone want to send any revenue out of our area?

What about those wineries that have concerts at their locations, like Ironstone in Murphys or Michael~David in Lodi? As long as wine is served or sold, I just don’t understand what the big deal is. They are promoting their products, which is the basic idea of a business.

A huge thank you to Delta Blood Bank for putting on this event and their choice of the Viaggio.

    Well said, Terry! I agree completely. I hadn't considered the dollars that benefit the extra staff, catering, and the musicians. Good point.
