A message from Bob Torkelson, President and CEO of Trinchero Family Estates, regarding fire relief assistance.

As thousands of brave men and women continue fighting the fires here in Napa and Sonoma, we are hopeful that containment is on the horizon. However, we are keenly aware that this is only the beginning as we anticipate a long, hard road of rebuilding for many of our neighbors and some of our own team members who have been displaced or lost homes.

We are proud to share that Trinchero Family Estates is donating $250,000 to the Napa Community Foundation to support fire relief efforts. Furthermore, we will be matching any employee donations 2-to-1 to our Family in Need Fund, and all of those dollars will specifically go towards helping our TFE team members affected by the fires. Our tasting rooms will remain closed for the next few days to help limit activity on the roads as we continue housing and providing meals for first responders at the Sutter Home Victorian Inn as we’ve done since last week.

We are extraordinarily grateful to the first responders who continue the fight to save our communities.
