Wilson, an owner of Pilot Peak Winery in Penn Valley, spoke at the Thursday meeting of the Economic Resource Council of Nevada County. He says part of the problem in California is that the state includes Nevada County in the same region as Central Valley agriculture. Wineries here are far smaller in scale and shouldn’t be regulated the same way as large operations in the valley, Wilson says.
