On this special edition of Sip Sip Hooray! we hear the incredible stories of bravery, heroism and spirit from vintners most impacted by the August 2020 CZU Lightning Complex fires. You will be riveted by their stories, but you’ll also find hope as they assess the aftermath and the path forward. Equally important, we share the best ways you can help the recovery efforts now.
Ryan Beauregard of Beauregard Vineyards in Bonny Doon, Bradley Brown of Big Basin Vineyards in Boulder Creek, Annalisa McHenry of McHenry Vineyard in Bonny Doon and Prudy Foxx of Foxx Viticulture, who works with many of the vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains impacted by the wildfires.
Buying wine and joining wine clubs greatly helps these family-owned wineries out. McHenry has set up a Go Fund Me campaign, looking to raise $25,000.
