Caymus Dismisses Lawsuit Over California’s Tasting Room Reopening RulesJune 12, 2020
Caymus Vineyards has ended its lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California late last month. Caymus sued over alleged unfair and disparate treatment in the state’s reopening plan for non-essential businesses—specifically the stipulation that only winery tasting rooms with food service be allowed to reopen.
With Governor Newsom subsequently deciding to open tasting areas for all wineries, regardless of whether or not they serve food, Caymus has dismissed its complaint. “We filed this suit not just for ourselves but also in defense of the many great small wineries in our area and across the state that are struggling, and we are very pleased with this development, ensuring fair and equal opportunity for our local industry,” said Chuck Wagner, founder and president of Caymus Vineyards.—Daniel MarstellerSubscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
