Wine and Water Watch

“Sonoma County residents’ battle with wineries is about more than water”

Sonoma County is a very special place. From gentle rolling hills with ancient oaks filled with abundant wildlife, to precious redwood forests, to our spectacular coast; this is a place to cherish and protect.

We are community volunteers working to challenge the county policies responsible for the negative cumulative impacts of winery event centers and industrial-sized facilities overtaking our rural and agricultural zones. We are currently working with groups such as Wine and Water Watch to challenge The Dairyman Winery and Event Center and the proposed changes to the General Plan that would allow the development of wineries and event centers in the Coastal Region.

Sonoma County used to be called God’s Country before it became Wine Country. Join our efforts to stop projects like these from destroying the rural beauty and quality of life we all enjoy. Get involved!

Preserve Rural Sonoma County works to protect the rural character of Sonoma County from the industrialization of agricultural lands caused by the encroachment of wine and spirits processing complexes/event centers.

We educate, advocate and organize to protect our families and communities, watersheds and wildlife habitat, addressing traffic safety, noise impacts, infrastructure and other impacts on the quality of life.

Thank you to our fiscal sponsor, Sonoma County Tomorrow!
