Land Trust of Napa County is pleased to announce the closing of a conservation easement in the Coombsville area of Napa donated by Dario Sattui. This is Sattui’s fifth conservation easement with the Land Trust. He has now protected nearly 600 acres.

“Five conservation easements is a lot,” said Doug Parker, CEO of the Land Trust. “And they have all gone smoothly with Dario. He is giving up significant value in this easement, eliminating the potential for both a winery and a residence, and we very much appreciate his generosity.”

The conservation easement will protect a property that overlooks the City of Napa in the Coombsville hills. By partnering with the Land Trust in creating the conservation easement, Sattui preserves the property’s natural and agricultural values forever, while maintaining the land in private ownership.

“Sadly I have seen tremendous development in the 44 years I have lived in Napa County,” said Dario Sattui. “I wish to be part of the solution by protecting all our properties with easements with the Land Trust. It gives me great pleasure to continue with my pledge.”

Both the Napa Register and the Weekly Calistogan covered this. See
