Napa Valley Is Alive and Well! Party On!
Plenty of attention was rightfully given last year’s tragic fires. According to a Los Angeles Magazine article later, only 20 of the 275 wineries reported damage. The grapes of 2017 had been harvested, crushed and placed in tanks by the time the fires started. In the end, few of the vines were damaged and wine country has stood strong.
With the arrival of spring, Napa Valley is as green as ever and the Excitement Calendar is filling up.
