2018 Beneficiary: Rebuild Wine Country
Founded by the team behind Senses Wines, Rebuild Wine Country is a group of volunteer wine industry professionals working with local Habitat for Humanity chapters to raise $5 million to rebuild owned and rented homes lost in Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Mendocino and Lake county wildfires.
It took 23 days to contain the fires.
Over 210,000 acres and nearly 9,000 structures burned, displacing tens of thousands of people. An estimated $3.3 billion of damages have been reported for insured losses.
Many families have nowhere to return.
That is where we come in. With your support, we will rebuild and revitalize the cornerstone of wine country communities: homes.
