When fires began threatening areas of Sonoma County, quickly clouding them in smoke and ash, I became concerned for my favorite local wineries in Glen Ellen and Kenwood. With an evacuation ordered, conflicting reports, and wild rumors spreading, I curated a list of wineries and their statuses, based on the information that I could gather.
Since the immediate danger is over, it is important to reach out and support them either by visiting a tasting room or purchasing wine online. The area is still beautiful, although there are areas of fire damage. Please be respectful of homes that were destroyed; keep your phone cameras off when driving past those neighborhoods.
