Midnight October 11th. The smog was around the city of San Francisco all day long, and the sun was shining through the haze in an unhealthy orange color. The wildfires continue to rage in the regions of Napa and Sonoma, and we continue to follow the news and hope that soon everything will be over.
T fires have affected the wine regions of Mendocino and Calistoga, and the nearby regions are evacuated.
Local media provided a list of wineries that suffered partial or complete damage from the wildfires:
Segassia Vineyard, Signorello, Stags’ Leap Winery, White Rock Vineyards, VinRoc, Gundlach Bundschu Winery, Paradise Ridge, Frey Vineyards Winery, Oster Wine Cellars.
Some farms have fallen victims of the natural disaster and it is likely that this could have a negative impact on the restaurant industry in the area.
Michelin, which on was supposed to release an annual guide on Monday, postponed the event and made the following statement: “Recognizing the turmoil and tragedy of the fires that are still burning, we understand this is a time for grief and recovery, not celebration. We extend our condolences to all who have been affected.”
In nearby cities such as Oakland and San Francisco, all outdoor school activities were canceled, and in the epicenter of fires are completely closed.
According to the latest data about 20 people were killed and 285 are considered missing.
