Spring Mountain vintner Stuart Smith: Napa County's Measure C is flawed

April 13, 2018

"It's a flawed document," he maintains. "Because it's not based upon science. It attempts to regulate something that has no in-depth scientifically identifiable problem. It's about an emotional reaction to the changes in the Napa Valley without identifying how those changes are impacting the watershed." "Instead of going to the county and requesting a study of the imagined problem," Smith said. "The initiative was written by two people and lawyers in a backroom."
