Vine Hill House is located in a very special agricultural area of Sonoma County, which is a Right-to-Farm county. This means agriculture is given priority over other uses. We and our neighbors operate vineyards, orchards, and tree farms. Vine Hill House is located among these operating agricultural lands that may include dust, odor, noise, pesticide applications, and other nuisances associated with agricultural activities. The impact on Vine Hill House from these activities is minimal.
