    Additional Notes
    In August 2005, Mondavi Winery sent us their 30-day notification that informed us that they were selling all of their leasehold interest in the enrolled property. At this time Mondavi informed us that we may contact the new owner, Margarita Vineyards, to see if they wished to transfer the original SHA permit. Over the past year, we have been talking with Margarita Vineyards about transferring the SHA to them. On September 28, 2006, Margarita Vineyards sent us a letter stating that they wished to implement the conservation actions of the original SHA agreement and to transfer the permit to them. On November 2, 2006, we advised Margarita Vineyards that they would need to submit an application to transfer the permit and also sign the original SHA signature page.
