Wine Industry Napa Earthquake Relief
Veedercrest, as are over 500 of the other wineries in Napa Valley, is a member of the Napa Valley Vintners, our primary Napa Valley winery industry charitable and trade organization.
The Napa Valley Vintners annually sponsors the very prestigious Napa Valley Auction, the largest fundraising event annually for the wine industry nationally. This year the Napa Valley Auction raised over $18,000,000 for charitable benefits.
As most of you are probably aware August 2014 Napa Valley events will go down in earthquake history as the largest earthquake to hit Northern California in over 25 years. The epicenter was just south of the town of Napa. Many wineries, many independent businessmen, retailers, hoteliers, service industries, and numerous private citizens have had significant losses.
The Napa Valley Vintners just announced a major “seed” grant of $10,000,000 to fund relief for Napa County residents and businesses. Veedercrest, as well as most other Napa wineries, is very pleased to be part of this relief effort.
We encourage your support during this recovery period of all of your favorite Napa Valley wineries and their wonderful wines.
