Good! I'm so tired of the money chasers who could care less about the environment. Sebastopol and adjacent areas have had old growth trees, landmarks destroyed for vineyards. They are ruining this special area. Most of them use pesticides which means the soil is deadly and wildlife have had thousands of acres taken.
I for one, am tired of looking at vineyards instead of the rolling hills and forests we used to enjoy...I'm sick of roadside wineries every mile. ugh.
