North Coast Wildfire Relief

We are one wine community!

In the wake of the devastating Kincade Fire in Sonoma and the Great North Coast, participating businesses in Paso Robles are donating $1 per bottle of wine sold November 1 – 30 to charities helping those affected.

Other Participating Businesses:

Etto Pastificio, Hospice du Rhone, La Quinta Inn & SuitesWine History Project of San Luis Obispo County 
Natural Healing Center

Visitors and locals alike are encouraged to purchase wine directly from wineries and businesses in Paso Robles Wine Country to help support our friends, colleagues, and partners in Sonoma County.

Once the funds are collected, the PRWCA will send contributions to several charitable organizations based in Sonoma.

Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation, who have re-launched the Wildfire Recovery Fund for Ag Employees and their families. Some of the worst damage from the Kincade Fire was to farmworker housing. Hundreds of vineyard workers have been impacted, potentially more than double than those affected by the 2017 North Coast fires. More information: http://www.scggf.org/fire-recovery-support/.

Corazón Healdsburg Unity and Community Fund, a community-based resource and recovery effort for those affected by the fire in Sonoma County. This organization is focused on the immediate needs of those displaced by the fire, providing victims with gift cards for food, shelter, and other necessities. More information: https://www.corazonhealdsburg.org/unityfund.

Community Foundation of Sonoma County – Resilience Fund. First established in 2017 to support recovery efforts from the North Bay Firestorm, this fund continues to be a source of long-term aid for Sonoma County and its residents. More information: https://www.sonomacf.org/.

These charities are dedicated to helping those most impacted by the fires and helping with relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts. The PRWCA is in contact with their peers in Sonoma about other ways they can help in the wake of the fires. For additional information about these efforts, please contact Joel Peterson.
