With the firestorms in Northern California wine country, Sonoma, Napa, and Santa Rosa contained, the impact is now being seen and recovery efforts underway. The numbers of displaced people is staggering. Bernardo Winery recently announced a wine and food tasting event Nov. 12, from 1 to 4 p.m., partnering with other San Diego County wineries and restaurants to support winery and vineyard workers and their families who have lost their homes in these fires, to re-establish their households.

One hundred percent of the revenue generated by this event will go to those families, through a fund that has been established for them by the Sonoma County Grape Growers Association. The SCGGF has created a relief fund specifically for winery workers and their families who have been displaced by these devastating fires.

Tickets are available here for $50 a person and $25 for designated drivers. Tickets include wine and food tasting as well as live acoustic music and a silent auction. Also, local agencies will be on hand to offer information on fire safety and evacuation tips. If you would like more information participating in this event, please email the organizer, Samantha Nawrocki at Sam@bernardowinery.com or 858-487-1866 ext. 115.
