A week ago today, multiple wildfires began to ravage the North Bay, burning entire neighborhoods in the matter of hours during the dark of night. These fires are still burning today and the devastation only continues to worsen. We've lived in both Napa and Sonoma since 2010. We raise our children here. Our lives are cemented here. This is where we call home.
As a family, and a winery, we've been incredibly fortunate to be spared from this tragedy thus far. We're very thankful for everyone that reached out to check on us during such harrowing times.
A lot of the community was not as fortunate and we feel the need and obligation to help our neighbors and community during a time of such heartbreak and devastation. So many of you have communicated your desire to assist in the recovery efforts and we've spent the past few days brainstorming the creation of that opportunity. Beginning this morning through December 31st, 100% of profits on all brick & mortar wines purchased on our website will be donated to the following funds and organizations in order to help rebuild our beautiful North Bay:

Honestly, this isn't about wine. This isn't about brick & mortar. This isn't about us. This is about the countless number of friends, families and neighbors that have lost everything; this is about those who lost loved ones and have to start from nothing with that sorrow in their hearts.
Just give. Please, just give. If you want to do so by purchasing wine and supporting Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino county wines, as all of our vineyards hail from these winegrowing regions, then please do so. If you want to donate directly to the organizations above, then please do that. If you want to donate your time at a shelter, please email us so that we can help facilitate. Whatever you do, please do something to help. Each and everyone of us love this area and some of us call it home. For those who no longer have a house in the place they call home, no donation is too little, no gesture too small. PLEASE SHARE!
