Edina Couple's California Winery Escaped Fire

Edina Couple's California Winery Escaped Fire”

In addition, NVV said there were still other wineries that had not yet been able to access their properties leaving their condition unknown. Had the fire continued to burn, it would have destroyed the business within minutes.

"Ongoing power outages, challenges communicating via email, text or phone and the inability for employees to get to their place of work continue".

She said roughly a third of the grapes in the overall fire region remained to be harvested. The majority of Napa Valley wineries were closed earlier in the week and we recommend calling to confirm if a winery is open before visiting.

The total extent of the damage is unknown - and still developing - but obviously this is terrible news for the winery owners and hoteliers who rely on tourism, and anyone who dreams of a trip to Napa and Sonoma.

Most of the grapes in the affected areas, however, had been harvested earlier in the season, she confirmed.

Wineries and hotels are included in the wreckage, and vineyards burned to the ground.

Intense and fast spreading wildfires have torched 170,000 acres in California's wine country.

An Edina couple says their Sonoma County winery has escaped the wildfires in northern California. Both Paradise Ridge Winery and Signorello Estates are reported to have been destroyed.

Napa, Sonoma and adjacent counties collectively account for 12 percent of the wine produced throughout California, but they are home to the state's most highly prized grapes, experts said.

The two largest blazes were situated in Napa Valley's eastern hills, near Atlas Peak, and in the northern part of Sonoma's city of Santa Rosa where the damage looked urban rather than rural, but far more destructive, he added.
