Assembly votes to honor historic vineyards

How important are California’s old historic vineyards? Important enough that the state Assembly voted Monday on a resolution affirming their value “to the agricultural and social heritage of the state.”

Lawmakers approved the resolution, HR 9, on a voice vote, with no opposition. Proposed by Assemblyman Tom Daly, D-Anaheim, the move has solely symbolic value, but it is a significant  step for vineyardists in the state who are hoping to keep antique vines in the ground.
