The Portola Valley Planning Commission will hold a third hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 4, on a revised application from Neely Wine, located at 555 Portola Road, for a conditional use permit to allow a wine tasting room and event space on its 230-acre property.
In the latest adjustment to the permit application, wine tasting using a reservation system would be allowed from Friday through Sunday for a maximum 16 hours per week, limited to an average of 12 visitors per hour.
Tasting would also be allowed by appointment from Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., limited to 30 visitors per day,
Up to 10 events for larger groups would be allowed per year. Four of the events would have a 100-person limit and six would have a 150-person limit.
Four of the events could end after the regular closing time of 7 p.m.
No amplified music would be allowed.
All of the events would be related to membership in the winery’s wine club and no rentals to outside groups would be allowed.
The conditional use permit application has met with some resistance over concerns with noise, parking and possible inebriated drivers, particularly from the winery's neighbors across Portola Road.
The commission meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Historic Schoolhouse at 775 Portola Road.
