The Grape Geeks are devastated to hear about the large wildfires that are currently burning in Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Lake, and Mendocino Counties in California. Our thoughts and concerns remain with everyone in the area. We are saddened to learn that many winery employees and locals have lost their homes, and some wineries and vineyards have been severely damaged or completely destroyed by the flames.

The Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) has mobilized its Disaster Relief Fund and is currently accepting donations to assist those in need. Please consider making a donation to help.
