Two weeks ago, California experienced unprecedented and devastating wildfires, centered around Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino. The effect on the local families and these wine regions will be cataclysmic. As a response, Patrick Cappiello, Pax Mahle and Sarah Morgenstern established Winemakers & Sommeliers for California Wildfire Relief (WSCWR). The goal of this organization is to rally wine professionals and wine lovers everywhere to support those affected by these terrible wildfires.
Tomorrow night, Hristo Zisovski (Wine Director, Altamarea Restaurant Group), Ryan Mills-Knapp (Owner, R2 Selections), Kim Prokoshyn (Head Sommelier, Rebelle NYC) and representatives from Skurnik Wines and Verity Wine Partners have donated their time and will be pouring some of their favorite Californian wine selections in support and solidarity of our winemaking friends out west. Meanwhile, exciting cellar-worthy bottles donated by sommeliers and collectors from around the country will be available for purchase by the bottle. Hospitality and cuisine is generously being provided by Laura Maniec of Corkbuzz.
PLEASE NOTE: 100% of all proceeds from this evening’s event will benefit wildfire victims.
