With the Kincade Fire now mostly in our rear-view mirror, we would like to express our gratitude to first responders. Our many blessings include that more than 90% of Sonoma County's growers and wineries were spared from the fire and most wineries are now back to normal operation. The best way to show your support is to visit our members' tasting rooms and to share their wines with friends and family over the coming months.
