This is Kathy Dennett , owner of Wing Canyon Vineyard along with her husband, Bill Jenkins. On October 10th, 2017, Bill, myself and 3 dogs evacuated from our home and winery due to the approaching Nun's Fire. It was rapidly burning its way down Lokoya Road 1/8 of a mile from our driveway. Our 2017 vintage wines were happily fermenting on the winery porch but the skies were ominous with heavy smoke and ash. We are currently staying in a Napa motel.
On Tuesday the 17th in the afternoon I received a series of photos of our home and winery taken by a fireman and friend who hiked into our site. All is gone, except the rammed earth walls. I will send photos later....
There will be many expenses involved in rebuilding and site work and permits. This is the time of year when wine sales peak and we were hoping to sell lots of wine as the shipping window has opened and our distributors were going to stock up for the holidays. We need the income to pay bottling expenses, mortgage, and our line of credit. All our current Chardonnay, franc , Syrah and library wines are burned. We would appreciate your support!
