Public Notice of Initial Issuance of Federal Operating Permit for Gonzales Winery

Pursuant to District Rule 218, the Monterey Bay Air Resources District solicits written comments to the preliminary decision to approve the issuance of the initial Federal Operating (Title V) Permit to Constellation Brands U.S. Operations, Inc. for Gonzales Winery (Gonzales Winery) for their existing winery operations located at 800 S. Alta Street in Gonzales.

The Gonzales Winery main operations include the fermentation, storage and aging of both red & white wine. In support of the winery operations the facility operates the following equipment: natural gas boilers, laboratory fume hood, and emergency internal combustion engines.

The Gonzales Winery facility at 800 S. Alta Street in Gonzales is considered a federal Major Source and subject to the Title V permitting program due to the potential to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The Operating Permit includes conditions to ensure that all federal requirements are satisfied. The Gonzales Winery has submitted the initial Title V permit application for the facility. The Title V permit to be issued will contain all the applicable federal requirements. The approval of this project is being proposed because the facility has the capability of complying with all applicable federal requirements.

The public has an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed Project. Under special circumstances, the District may hold a public hearing. Written comments must be submitted to 24580 Silver Cloud Court, Monterey, CA 93940  and be postmarked by Friday, June 24, 2022.
