Support Napa Valley with These Great Local Wines
By now you’ve heard, seen, or even been directly affected (or know someone who was) by the Napa Valley wildfires. These fires were truly devastating, with lives lost, 220,000 acres burned, and thousands of homes destroyed.
If you want to help, there are numerous ways to donate directly to fire relief.
And it’s no secret that the fuel in the engine of Napa Valley’s economy is wine production. Luckily, much of this year’s grape crops had already been harvested before the fires hit. But the county is still reeling and will take years to recover.
On top of direct donations, you can support this beautiful and beloved region by purchasing and enjoying the best Napa Valley wines. Here are a few we recommend.
