Over a year ago, the City began the process of annexing the Mountain Winery property into the Saratoga City limits. While many people already associate the Mountain Winery with Saratoga, it is actually located just outside City limits in unincorporated Santa Clara County. Because of that, Saratoga has had no control over the uses and operations at the Mountain Winery. Finally bringing the Mountain Winery into Saratoga would give the City an opportunity to influence the future of the property, including potential plans for lodging. As part of this proposed boundary and zoning change, the City created a plan that limits opportunities for future development to a specific area and ensures a large percentage of the property remains in its current natural state.
