Healdsburg, CA – Peterson Winery, along with the Forestry Crab Feed organization, is hosting a silent auction fundraiser for the firefighters and their families who were injured or lost their homes while they battled to save homes and property of others during the devastating 2015 Valley fire in neighboring Lake County.
The silent auction, held at Peterson Winery in Dry Creek Valley, begins on April 23 and will coincide with Winegrowers of Dry Creek Valley annual Passport event. The auction will run through May 1, with most of the items having a “Buy Now” option. Many local wineries and other businesses have contributed items for the auction, including large format bottles, a collection of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels, tickets to Passport 2017, gift certificates to local restaurants, citrus trees, and much more.
In addition to the funds raised by the auction, Peterson Winery will donate profits from the sale of their Fire Storm Red, which is Zinfandel from Warren Ranch Vineyard in Alexander Valley, to the Firefighters Relief Fund. Only 75 cases were produced of this delicious wine, which will be released on April 23 for Passport and be available at the Peterson tasting room during the coming weeks. The cost is $30 per bottle.
If any business or person wishes to donate to this worthwhile cause, please contact Peterson Winery at 707-431-7568 or [email protected]. Donations may also be dropped off at Peterson Winery, 4791 Dry Creek Rd., Bldg #7, Healdsburg.
