However, many of those celebrations are on hold, putting the breaks on tourism to the Napa and Sonoma wine valleys.
Santa Barbara-based Direct Relief (DRI) has offered emergency assistance to California's Office of Emergency Services, the Napa County Public Health Department, and more than 40 health centers and clinics in the affected region.

In recent memory, there hasn't been anything like the wildfires now burning in these relatively densely populated areas of the North Bay, and several cities and towns are likely to be assessing damages for weeks to come, and rebuilding for years to come, including Santa Rosa and Glen Ellen. The Anaheim Fire Department said the burst was being pushed by 25 miles per hour winds. She had fled so fast that she hadn't put on her shoes.
She's too distraught to sleep.
"Around 3 a.m., there was a lot slamming of doors, shouting, vehicle engines revving, so, I get up and go downstairs", Jake Palmgren, a 20-year-old custom crush worker told Wine Enthusiast.
In Santa Rosa, the Fountain Grove Inn and Hotel was destroyed and another hotel, the Hilton, was in flames, the affiliate reported.
