     Updated Napa Valley Vintners Statement on Earthquake
    8/25/2014 - St. Helena, CA – The Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) nonprofit trade association is continuing to gather information about the impact of yesterday’s earthquake on the local wine industry.
    The NVV’s immediate priority remains the health and wellbeing of those in the community affected by the earthquake, including the more than 200 treated for injuries at Queen of the Valley Medical Center; more than 200 who were offered aid from the Red Cross; the dozens of buildings and homes that have been “red-tagged” following the incident; and the neighborhoods that are still without water and gas and may be for several more days. 
    The association is taking several steps to serve as a centralized resource for its 500 members, including sending bulletins with updated information about earthquake resources and adding an Earthquake Relief section to its online Vintners Forum to facilitate winery to winery assistance and support. Napa County officials have asked the NVV to serve as a centralized resource by compiling information about damages and losses experienced by wineries. 
    The NVV is also planning a workshop later this week to help those affected by the earthquake with their immediate questions. 
    Harvest is underway in Napa Valley and everyone is working hard to get business “back to normal” as quickly as possible. Weather throughout the growing season has been ideal and vintners are expecting yet another excellent vintage, the third year in a row in the region. The earthquake did not impact vineyards or the grapes on the vine and majority of Napa Valley’s wineries are open for business.
    For those who did suffer equipment or facility damage, there are resources available to secure temporary tanks and other production equipment to help them get through the next few weeks. The spirit of collaboration for which the Napa Valley is known is expected to prevail, even for those who did suffer damage.
    At this time, it is too early to provide damage or loss estimates for wine, equipment and facilities, but here are some things that are known:
    • Some NVV member wineries did sustain damage to their barrel storage areas, wine inventory and production equipment over the weekend, but details are not currently available.
    • There were no reports of winery employees being injured by the earthquake.
    • The majority of the wine that is at the wineries right now is from the 2012 and 2013 vintages – the two most abundant vintages ever. While some individual wineries may experience inventory shortages as a result of the earthquake, it is not expected to have a significant impact on Napa Valley wine inventory in general.
    Our suppliers, Sequoia Grove Vineyard and Heitz Wine Cellars fortunately could avoid the great damage.

     Zodiac Sign of the Month


    August, 23 – September 22


    Do the right thing


    Many Virgos can be found working in the "service to others" industries, ranging from welfare work, doctors, school-teachers through to practising natural forms of healing like massage, herbal remedies etc. One of the most magical characteristics of the Virgo is no matter how many times life or romance turns sour on them; they still manage to maintain faith in others, refusing to become cynical. There is ingenuity around this sign, a kind-heartedness, which unfortunately is sometimes played upon by others for their advantage.

    Shy, Virgos are happy to allow others to take centre-stage and often generate their time and energy into making those they love happy or successful.They are givers and when the chips are down and you need advice or companionship, the one available is most likely a Virgo.Because they are so deep and reflective themselves, they understand human frailties better than most.When it comes to wine, Virgos like the unusual. They enjoy difference and are open for new things. They always know everything about the latest trends. This attribute is appreciated by all of their friends. If you want to know which wine fits to you, you should definitely ask a Virgo he/she will know what kind of wine you will like most.
