Earthquake 2014

At approximately 3:20 am Sunday, August 24, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake occurred northwest of American Canyon and 6 miles from downtown Napa.  The epicenter was about 1.5 hours drive from Hawk and Horse Vineyards' location in Lower Lake.

In Lake County the quake was felt as a slow rolling and shaking of buildings.  Residents were woken by the magnitude of the quake but no one was reported injured in Lake County.  At Hawk and Horse Vineyards the ranch and vineyard sustained no signs of damage and our entire wine inventory is safe.

Not everyone was as fortunate.  Several structures in the city of Napa, many of historic nature, received significant damage. At this time, it appears the majority of the damage was centered on specific areas in the city of Napa. The regions around Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga seem to have experienced minimal damage and disruption. For travelers coming to the Napa Valley, most businesses are open as usual, however, we suggest calling first to confirm your plans. The official Visit Napa Valley Welcome Center will be opened today, August 25. They will continue to update as new information becomes available. 

We thank those of you who have reached out to us to check on our well-being and ask that you continue to hold those less fortunate in your thoughts and prayers.
