We are incredibly fortunate to have a number of individuals who have reached out to us inquiring on ways to support our community in Sonoma County. There are many in our community who have been impacted by the fire at this point and who could use your support.
In partnership with the Community Foundation, we have our Sonoma County Vintners Emergency Relief Fund to benefit the community. It was established to address and meet challenges like the floods of 2019 and the Kincade fire. If you wish to donate, please select the “Donate to Emergency Relief Fund” button on: https://sonomawine.com/foundation
Many wineries have lost business due to closures for evacuations/power outages, you can support them by purchasing Sonoma County Wines at your favorite local retailer or online via their websites.
Our friends at Soda Rock Winery have had damage to their tasting room. However, the 2019 harvest has not been affected. Also, the majority of their inventory is stored off-site. With 99% of their harvest complete, you can expect to enjoy their wines for years to come!
We would like to thank everyone for your thoughts and concerns regarding the #KincadeFire located in the North Eastern area of Sonoma County. We are in contact with CalFire and county officials and are monitoring the status and impacts of the fire.
To our wine community: we are receiving inquiries from the media and it is important for us to share accurate information. If possible, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the current status and impact of the fire on your property, structure and staff. If you receive media inquiries, feel free to refer to our team. #SonomaStrong
