To our friends, family, neighbors & customers.
It is with a heavy heart and tired eyes that we write to thank you for your outpouring of love and support during the past week. Your well wishes and kind words have given us hope and lifted our spirits. The Napa Valley Fires have devastated lives, countless homes, businesses, and properties and left the community utterly shocked and deeply saddened. Fortunately, we were spared—our vineyards and wines avoided damage from the fire—but our lives are forever changed by this moment in history.
Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed immense grace and selfless acts first hand. We have seen people give beyond their means and work tirelessly to help our community. Many of these people work in the wine industry and many of them we know personally. We have never been more proud to call this community home, as these courageous acts embody the generous spirit of the region.
Many of you have asked how you can help. Thank you. The truth is, some people have not shared our same luck. So we ask one simple favor—continue buying Sonoma and Napa wines. This is an easy way to help and it will make a difference. The financial impact of these fires will be costly and far reaching. Every dollar counts in helping get the region back on its feet.
Lastly, we would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of the brave men and women who are working around the clock to contain the fires. Your unwavering service and remarkable heroism cannot be understated or properly articulated. And to the families who lost their homes, friends and even loved ones, we are truly sorry for your loss. We are heartbroken. The road ahead is daunting but we have no doubt that this community will work together to rebuild a better and stronger community.
From Napa with love,
