The California wildfires are not slowing down. The Glass Fire, which started over the weekend in the heart of Napa Valley between Calistoga and St. Helena, has spread quickly and 11,000 acres have already been lost in Napa and Sonoma.
Several wineries, vineyards, and resort properties reported serious damage on Monday morning.

On Sunday, the fire necessitated evacuations east of the Silverado Trail, including Calistoga Ranch, Château Boswell, the Meadowood Resort, and multiple vineyards and wineries. Thomas Rivers Brown, co-owner and winemaker at Mending Wall, told Wine Spectator, “It burned right up to the tasting room doors.”
