California's Sonoma Wine Country still open for business

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

California’s Sonoma Wine Country is open for business following the Aug. 24 earthquake that struck about 20 miles east of the town of Sonoma.

It caused minimal damage and most wineries, shops, and restaurants are open for business. There are no reports of significant injuries or structural damage in Sonoma County.

A preliminary indication from the USGS showed that it was centered 4.2 miles northwest of American Canyon in Napa County, which was harder hit.


“We are very fortunate that the quake was short lived and the damage was minimal here,” said Ken Fischang, president/CEO of Sonoma County Tourism, the official destination marketing organization for Sonoma County.

“Sonoma County is open to receiving visitors, from the rolling vineyards to the towering redwood forests and out to the Pacific Ocean beaches,” Fischang said. “We do ask for patience as the clean up progresses. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Napa neighbors. It will only be a matter of time before all of Northern California’s famed Wine Country is fully back in business.”
