This week, heck this year has posed so many different challenges to all of us and there was no way we could leave out any mention as to the absolute shock and horror to the recent loss to many iconic Napa Valley properties due to the Glass fire which is still raging across both Napa and Sonoma counties.
We ask you this morning to take a moment to think about your last trip to wine country, whether that was in Walla Walla, Napa, Sonoma, Texas Hill Country or out in the Finger Lakes and think about what that experience meant to you. Pretty amazing experience, right? Share that experience with friends today, whether over the phone or on social media and share it. It's one way to provide support for those artisan winemakers, winery and vineyard workers and all the related hospitality folks that are reeling in the tragic loss this morning.
That short little exercise just showed an amazing thing; a moment of happiness, a genuine sign of love, and unique moment of respect and kindness that seems to be lost these days. More than ever, this no doubt is THE time to rise above the fray, a time when wine scores don't matter, a time we can all rally support for all those effected in Napa and Sonoma from afar or up close... and we're going to show you how easy it really is as we know, personally how much this will mean to everyone.
Here's some articles that we believe are worth mentioning that help tell the tragic loss in both Napa and Sonoma Counties this week.
