If you want to taste outstanding wine and do a good deed all at the same time, there are three events coming to San Francisco you should know about because they offer ways to help with wine country recovery. The recent North Bay wildfires have made significant impacts on the people and property of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties and you can help with the areas’ recoveries. The Atlas Fire burned 51,624 acres and the Redwood Valley Fire burned 36,523 acres, but fortunately now both of those are 100% contained. Other major fires in the region are all the way up to 98% contained: Tubbs Fire (36,807 acres), Pocket Fire (17,357 acres) and the Nuns/Adobe/Norrbom/Pressley/Partrick Fire (56,556 acres).
What’s needed now is for visitors to travel to wine country and invest in the local economy. Help can be provided by spending money at local wineries, restaurants, shops and hotels. Alternatively, several charities are accepting financial contributions. If you’d like to plan a trip to Napa, Sonoma and/or Mendocino Counties, you can just click on the navigation bar above at “Favorites By Wine Region” and follow the drop-down menus to see our personal recommendations.
But, what if you can’t come to wine country right now? Well, we’re pleased to share that wine country recovery opportunities are coming directly to the residents of and visitors to the City of San Francisco. During the second week of November, three different wine tasting events take place in the City and your attendance (and possible wine purchases) will support individuals and businesses in these North Bay wine regions. Please review the information below, go have a wonderful time and maybe even start on your holiday shopping.
