Purple Wine + Spirits in Graton is currently a high-volume wine and spirits production facility. We believe the facility and the community are better suited if we reduce volume and operate as an end-to-end wine and spirits production facility.
Reduced Bottling Capacity
Well water use / waste water production
Reduced annual traffic
Increased parking in downtown Graton
Reduced truck traffic back up in downtown Graton
Reduced onsite employees
Our site plan shows the location of the proposed crush pad in the middle of our property where the existing buildings serve as natural noise barriers. The crush pad will be covered. After listening to the community, we revised our truck route to maintain our existing truck route today with trucks accessing and exiting the site from Graton Road. While the truck traffic pattern will remain the same as today, we anticipate significantly less traffic due to our 50% reduction in capacity.
Our Proposal will also reduce outdoor operating hours during non-harvest months, i.e. ten out of twelve months each year. During harvest months, typically September and October, winemaking activity would be allowed to occur 24 hours per day and 7 days per week while truck hauling activity is limited to the hours of 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We’re committed to providing Graton with local high paying agricultural production jobs, modernizing our operations, and significantly lowering our operations’ impacts in the community.
