As you know, the Napa Valley was struck by a 6.0 earthquake early Sunday morning. While people throughout the Bay Area experienced the tremors, it was Southern Napa and surrounding areas that were hit the hardest. Despite the significant damage that was done, and the injuries that occurred, the Napa Valley is filled with strong, hard working individuals that came together and worked tirelessly minutes after the quake to make sure their neighbors and community were safe.
I am grateful and proud of our Napa-based PlumpJack Group team from all four of our properties: The Carneros Inn, Odette Estate, PlumpJack Winery and CADE Estate Winery. Everyone worked together to get our businesses open so we could quickly go back to doing what we do best at PlumpJack – providing exceptional hospitality and continuing to make some of the best wine in California.
Additionally, thanks to the incredibly quick response of CalTrans, the roads are all accessible, and traffic was at a minimum all day Sunday and on Monday when I was driving to check on our properties.
We are tremendously grateful that our businesses were so lucky to survive any real damage. Residents of the Napa Valley are a very close knit community and we are heartbroken for our friends and neighbors who have not been so lucky. We encourage you to show your support for Napa by paying a visit to those businesses who have worked hard to open their doors this week. Go to Visit Napa Valley for a list of all the Napa Valley businesses that are open and welcoming guests. Each and every one of Napa’s residents and businesses are in our thoughts and prayers, and we hope to help them in any way we can in the coming days and weeks.
