New Wildfire in Sonoma County
Due a combination of high winds, hot temperatures and extremely dry conditions, a new wildfire in Sonoma County called the Glass Fire has prompted new evacuations and road closures (Highway 29 near St Helena which is a major route in that area), and public safety power outages. A red flag alert for critical fire conditions is active throughout Northern California as well as Southern California and LA counties.
Hillebrand has been reaching out to confirm the safety of local staff in the area and is checking in on the status for wineries and suppliers as well. See this updated article from the Wine Spectator this morning. Be aware that local pickups in the Sonoma / Napa / Santa Rosa area could be impacted from this developing situation.
