“In response to the devastating fires in Sonoma and Napa, our priority has been and remains the safety of our Jackson Family Wines family, friends and colleagues.

Today, we have suspended all farming and harvest activities in the north coast while we focus on our people. The main office is working with limited staffing and electrical power to meet basic operational needs. 

Currently there appears to be no damage to any of our facilities but we are monitoring the situation closely. Our thoughts are with everyone in our community who has been affected.” — Rick Tigner, President and CEO of Jackson Family Wines
