Once again, two of our wine regions, Mendocino and Lake counties, are threatened by wildfires. Although the fires have yet to be on any vineyard or winery land, thousands of people, some employees of the wine industry have been severely impacted, some losing their homes. Please consider giving to those in need.
Please consider a donation to one of the fire relief funds. One we recommend is the Community Foundation of Mendocino County's:
About Us: Wine industry leaders have formed a support network to provide immediate assistance and long-term aid to victims of the fires ravaging Northern California. We are calling on the national wine and wine loving communities to help.
Organized by a group of association leaders representing the Golden State’s major winegrowing regions, support efforts include the #CAWineStrong joint fundraising and creation of an online resource database where vintners can find and offer resources, such as generators, trailers, lodging and manpower.
