From one of the first wineries to be declared lost to the fire, David talks with Katrina Frey of Frey Vineyards in Redwood Valley about the effects, losses and plans for recovery from the devastating wildfires. Frey Vineyards is America’s first organic and biodynamic winery producing award-winning vegan, gluten-free wines with no added sulfites since 1980. Katrina reports on the damage to the winery, but stresses the most important assets of Frey are intact – the family and employees are all safe and sound.
Next up is Kimberly Noelle Charles, founder & owner of Charles Communications Associates, a public relations, branding and marketing company in San Francisco. Kimberly jumped into action after the start of the fires, and has raised over $54,000 in 14 days for aid for those affected by the fires.
