We are devastated as more reports arrive about the effect of the Woolsey Fire on the Malibu Coast AVA. Many acres of vineyards burned, residences were destroyed, and lives were affected over the course of the fire, but most importantly, our alliance members and their families escaped to safety.
We are hoping to assemble a list of vineyard resources to be used by our members in the process of restoring and rebuilding their sites over the coming months.
This website will continue to be updated with information as we receive it from our membership. In the meantime, we will post links to the numerous news stories that have been published about the fire and the Malibu Coast AVA.
