Always Something to be Thankful For , A Report from the 2017 Napa Wildfires

On Sunday, October 8, 2017, multiple wildfires broke out in Napa and Sonoma Counties. The fires quickly spread with astonishing ferocity.

In the midst of much destruction, we are pleased to report that our family and our staff are safe, and we are so very thankful that no one here at Flora Springs lost their home. Our benchland and valley floor vineyards are also thankfully intact, as is the winery – including our beloved old stone Ghost Winery. Miraculously, because of the growing conditions this year, 100% of our grapes were harvested and under the roof before the fires began.

Unfortunately, not all of our friends and neighbors are as fortunate, and our hearts go out to the folks whose homes and businesses have been damaged or destroyed. Our community is one of resilience and strength, and together we will pull through.

If you are interested in supporting relief efforts in Napa Valley, we encourage you to visit the Napa Valley Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund.

Also, please join us on October 29th at The Room for our Napa Valley Fire Relief Benefit Music Festival. For more information please click here.
