Wise Vineyards Donates $250000 to Wine Country Fire Recovery Effort

Wise Vineyards Donates $250000 to Wine Country Fire Recovery Effort”

However, it is now 100 percent contained, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal FIRE) announced on Thursday. For those who wish to donate recovery and relief efforts, the Napa Valley Vintners recommends the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund. You can buy tickets in advance here at the dinner party or at Fleur de Sel. Tickets will be available at the door also.

In terms of the impact on this year's harvest the WI added: "Due to heat in late August and early September the majority (90 per cent reported in Napa Valley and Sonoma County, 75 per cent in Mendocino County) of the 2017 harvest was completed prior to the start of the fires".

The Redwood Valley fire, one of several that ignited on October 8, charred 36,523 acres and killed eight people. Meanwhile, evacuation orders are beginning to be lifted. For every tragic discovery though we are learning of some bright spots. "Sadly, we had three employees lose their homes due to the fires, but we did not lose any buildings or vineyards". The significance of this one building surviving such a devastating fire can not be overstated. "The wine industry is OK", said Gladys Horiuchi of the Wine Institute, an advocacy group that represents more than 1,000 wineries in California. "This summer's wildfires are a reminder of the importance of fuels reduction and that smoke produced during a prescribed fire is much less intense and of shorter duration than that of a wildfire". This struck us as odd. As the news developed this week we did learn that not many grape vines actually burned for just this reason. The fires impacted none of the B. Wise vineyards or the Moon Mountain Estate winery. Collectively, the fires in Sonoma County were considered 94 percent contained.

Many people across the world have asked how they can help. Many may be forced to leave the area and their hopes of rebuilding behind. This as 20 times that amount of the housing stock is simply gone, destroyed. Bartolomei tells them, "The best thing you can do right now is come and support the tourism businesses". Prescribed fire helps to promote a diverse and more resilient forest, as well as improve habitat for wildlife. Winds moderated by October 16, which enabled firefighters to make progress toward containing the 15 wildfires still active across California; more than 217,000 acres had burned, and approximately 5,700 structures had been destroyed.

George Balling is co-owner (with his wife Mary Lancaster) of the dinner party, a wine and table top décor shop located by Costco in Coeur dAlene. As heavy smoke shrouded much of Wine Country, teams of first responders made headway against the blazes and of this writing, nearly all of these fires have been extinguished.
