Statement from Karissa Kruse, president of Sonoma County Winegrowers:

“It has been a devastating fire. At this time, we are still assessing the specific damage to Sonoma County vineyards as well as to our communities and neighbors. Reports of fire damage to wineries, businesses and homes continues to grow. While 90% of the winegrapes have been harvested, there were still grapes in the vineyards that were scheduled to be picked in the next ten days. At this time we have no information on specific crop damage. Our top priority right now is the health and safety of our first responders, families, employees, volunteers and everyone impacted by these wildfires. We are continuing to closely monitor the situation, but we are very proud of how our community is already coming together to support each other in this time of crisis.”
