Sonoma Wine County is open for business after San Francisco earthquake

Sonoma Wine Country is once again open for business following the August 24 earthquake in California.

The earthquake struck about 20 miles east of the town of Sonoma, with the epicentre about 4.2 miles northwest of American Canyon in Napa County.

Napa County has reportedly been harder hit.


The earthquake was strong, but it caused minimal damage in Sonoma.

Most wineries, shops, and restaurants have recovered and are now open for business. There are no reports of significant injuries or structural damage in Sonoma County.


“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. “Sonoma County is open to receiving visitors, from the rolling vineyards to the towering redwood forests and out to the Pacific Ocean beaches.

He added: “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.
