Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers and messages during these devastating wildfires. We extend our greatest sympathy and thoughts to those who have suffered losses and remain threatened by this tragic event.
We are relieved to say that all of the members of our winery family are safe, as are our vineyards and our winery. Our hearts are breaking for those around us who have suffered a different fate. Some of our employees remain under evacuation orders, and we are sad to say that our founder and Kim’s father, David Stare, has lost his home.
Our winemaking team has been working diligently during this difficult time, and nearly all of our fruit had already been brought in before the fires began. We are very impressed with the quality of the 2017 vintage thus far and are extremely optimistic that there will be no adverse effects from the smoke.
We are deeply appreciative of the selfless first responders who have worked tirelessly to keep us safe during this unprecedented disaster. If you are looking for ways to help us rebuild our community and those affected by the fires, please visit: http://www.sonomacounty.com/fire.
We continue to monitor the ongoing situation, and due to the impact of the surrounding areas, shipments or communications may be delayed. We ask for your patience at this time and will do our best to keep you updated.
