Governor Newsom excludes his winery from the shutdown order

Governor Gavin Newsom of California closed all wineries and other businesses in 19 counties in California.

Those counties included Fresno, Kern, Kings, Merced, and Tulare in the Central Valley.

The closures included restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos and museums, cardrooms, and bars. Gov. Newsom’s winery and tasting room in Napa Valley remained open as of the July 1, 2020 order.

The zoo? An open-air activity? Who did they trace back to the zoo?

Happy July 4th!

Madera Co. wineries were exempt from the July 1, 2020 order from the Governor. Gov. Newsom owns stock in PlumpJack Group, which includes a winery in Napa Valley’s Oakville.

These aren’t small shares. The Newsom couple made $600,000 from them in 2018.

While the numbers of COVID cases are much higher in Fresno Co. than in Napa Co., which is where PlumpJack Estate Winery is, it’s not a good look.

Family gatherings are also banned but Code Pink will rally on July 4th, and nothing will happen to them.

Time for the leftist state dictators to be removed from the scene. One way or another.
I’d really like to see the rational-thinking citizens of CA remove him and his cohorts all over that state, via the old fashioned method of torches and pitchforks type assaults on the dens of inequity where they reside.
But, hey, we’re more civilized than that these days. Maybe not, as the current protests(riots) are showing us almost daily.
Time to stop the nonsense. These children really don’t have a clue what they are doing, nor asking for. The end will not be in their favor, nor pretty.

California needs to do with Newsom what they did with Gray Davis.

It’s called Plump Jack Winery The only review there was, called it swill. The wine is contained in SCREW cap bottles which can hardly be called a fine wine but suits Newsom. My husband and I went on our own wine tour in Nappa Valley. This place wasn’t even listed. Just as well, I’d hate to think I drank the crap. Crap comes from the Latin word grappa, defined as the sludge at the bottom of a wine barrel and used as fertilizer. I attempted to find out who’s”infested” in this business but it was futile. Hummm ???

I loathe the man, but Plump Jack is not swill. It is actually a high end wine. Gordon Getty is his partner. Go figure…by the way, join those of us who renamed him Gov. Nuisance

Is this the same property his aunt Nancy also owns?
