Well it has certainly been a week that will not be forgotten in Napa ever, but the resilience that has risen from the rubble in the Valley has been palpable! Neighbors helping neighbors, businesses helping businesses vintners helping vintners. It is a bright and refreshing "about face" from the overly self-involved social and political climates of late.
Yesterday morning was absolutely gorgeous her, so I set out with camera in hand to capture a bit of what remains unrattled by the earthquakes and capture the grapes still on the vines before they are picked for the new vintage!
With copters still overhead I realized why the heck those news teams were still hanging around days after the initial shake. It is absolutely sublime up here and they were getting paid to be here. For those of you who aren't covering the grand event or don't live here, come on up! Come up and support our businesses, or better yet, come up and indulge yourselves. The ground has stopped shaking, Napa Valley is still as beautiful and sensory as ever, the community is grateful and rallying, and the weather's fine!
