Wild Fire In Gold Country

There is a wild fire along the border of El Dorado and Amador counties. Deaver Vineyards has posted some troubling images of the golden glow in the smoke visible from their tasting room. Here’s a link to a local news story. The radio report I heard says 1300 acres have been burned and 5 houses have been lost.

Hoping for the best for my friends and acquaintances and all of their neighbors.

Your tasting in western Amador (near Plymouth) and northern El Dorado (Pleasant Valley and north of 50) should be unaffected by the fire.
