    Wine Country is not quite ready to open itself up to weddings.

    Wine Country is aflutter with all kinds of drama lately.

    And we're talking the bridal kind.

    See, with the economy wreaking havoc, wineries want the county to eliminate a 20-year-old law requiring many local wineries to host tours and tastings by appointment only.

    The law effectively bans weddings at wineries. Lifting it would open up many more locations to an army of bridezillas and corporate meeting planners.

    "Three of the four major wine industry groups in Napa Valley are pushing back against a plan to boost the local economy by opening up Napa County wineries to weddings and corporate retreats," the St. Helena Star reported.

    The Napa County Board of Supervisors will take up the issue again next month, at which point there will be more arguing following two hours of fighting at last week's meeting.
