Just saw on the news that Napa And Sonoma counties are taking a hit. Also the City of Napa has issues

Any major damage to the wineries & vines yet>
Original Post
Just got a text from a friend at Ledson and he said they are closed, no power, and Kenwood hit pretty hard. He said the fires extend from Napa into Glen Ellen. Another friend in the Soda Canyon area sent photos showing their vineyard surrounded by flames. There's a photo of the raceway in Sonoma we always go to for the Indy race with the line of flames cutting down the hillsides - green on one side and black on the other. Devastating.
Really sad situation. I hope our Nor Cal winemaker friends chime in.

SFgate.com has good coverage of the blazes
Heartbreaking to follow the news on this.

I hope the loss of life is limited, and I wish everyone out there the best of luck. This is awful.
It's a very sad day in the valley. My family has property in Calistoga off of Petrified Forest road. I was cooking dinner on the deck last night around 8:00 pm and something didn't feel right. I have not seen wind get that high this time of year. Two hours later the fire started. We evacuated the property around 12:00 am and the fire missed the property by about a mile. We're safe for now. Calistoga is without power and it feels like a ghost town on main street.

It's heartbreaking to think about how many people this is impacting.

We were up there this weekend. It was hot all weekend and the winds were crazy yesterday afternoon, from Napa all the way to Sacramento. We have a place on Vichy (south of Silverado CC) and my in-laws have a place inside Silverado CC, both were evacuated early in the morning. We came back to SD last evening around 7pm before the fires, and awoke at 2:00am to lots of text messages. Luckily my in-laws had also left yesterday morning for vacation. Our friends in the neighborhood were able to evacuate quickly. Sounds like neighbors really took care of each other. Hope people can get out safely.

Praying for the families affected and for the brave guys going out there to fight the fires.
I've been watching ABC's live feed since about 3am. Just sickening to see. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected.
This is second hand from a prominent winemaker in Napa. These wineries have taken damage or were destroyed. More will be know in the next 24 hours.

So sad...
Darioush winery survived. Vines took some damage and his home was unfortunately lost

Can add White Rock in Soda canyon and Paradise Ridge in Santa Rosa to lost list. Many friends and some family in harms way hoping for the best for all.

A couple of hours ago, Cliff Lede said the Poetry Inn, as well as their winery and vineyards, were undamaged from the fire.
Exactly. A lot of false information being passed around. There were still new evacuations in Sonoma County this morning. Naturally it would be best to let things unfold in due time but what do I know.
Just heard from GF's aunt over in Fountain grove area of Santa Rosa which is one of the ground zero areas. She's on the southeastern edge of the perimeter off Brush Creek Road. As of now she still has a home but a half a block away it's a disaster zone. Hoping it stays away. It's gonna be that close for many
