Winery Goes to Pot

  The well-known Fetzer Vineyards of Redwood Valley in Mendocino County has changed hands. The Fetzer family actually sold their namesake property 25 years ago. The current foreign owners sold to a San Francisco investor-funded business speculating on rapid growth. Instead of processing grapes it'll be processing the other local cash crop, marijuana. 

  The property includes production facilities that will work well for cannabis processing according to the new owners, Flow Kana, whose website says, "Experience Artisan Cannabis." I guess this is better than corporate cannabis. 

  The Fetzer site happens to include a tasting room in case, you know, marijuana tasting becomes legal.
