Winecountry Fire Update, from Bob Fraser

I would like to convey my concerns for the vineyard and winery industry in Mendocino, Lake, Colusa, Napa, Sonoma, Solano, and other outlying counties with the tremendous fires and related problems. Living in Cloverdale and owning a vineyard/home in the Red Hills, Lake County, I fully realize the terror and worry for our homes and property. I have been safe so far but share the utmost sorrow for some of my wine industry colleagues that have not been as fortunate. When we also take in consideration of the catastrophic Lake County fires in the last few years and coupled with the widespread North Coast fires of 2017, as a wine industry, we need to galvanize ourselves and stand together in support of one another. My prayers are with all of you that have been affected with these devastating fires.
