Town Of Moraga

Home-Based Winery Businesses

Town Council provided direction to staff on development of new regulations for home-based winery businesses. The regulations are intended to allow Moraga’s existing small winery businesses to continue to operate, subject to compliance with limits on production, employees, special events, property rental, and Town and County standards for noise, crop spraying, and waste management to ensure compatibility with residential uses. The Town Council did not support a suggestion to broaden the regulations to cover cottage food businesses or other limited commercial agriculture. Staff will continue to work with stakeholders to draft the regulations, which will be reviewed by the Planning Commission and Town Council in 2016.
