After several years of discussion and debate, the Cache County Council last month unanimously passed an ordinance allowing wineries in the valley, and the valley’s first commercial wineries may be licensed soon.

Ordinance 2021-21 will allow wineries — production of fruits, plants, honey, or milk, or other similar substances to produce wine — within Cache County. The winery will have to be an accessory to “Primary Agricultural Production” use and 51% of all produce must be within the boundaries of Cache County.

 

Additionally, retail sales, tours, wine-tasting facilities and related accessory promotional items are also permitted. No more than 15,000 cases of wine will be allowed per year. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
