“We are so grateful to our team and neighbors for their aid during the fire and are safe because of them. It’s with deep gratitude, that we’ve decided to make a significant donation from the 2020 sauvignon blanc sold to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund.”
Emma Swain, St. Supéry CEO
St. Supéry Supports the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund
In 2020, as if Covid wasn’t enough, the LNU Lightning Complex and Glass fires wreaked havoc in the Napa Valley, directly impacting St. Supéry Estate Vineyards and Winery with a really unique silver lining – the importance of giving back.
At Dollarhide Ranch only one third of our total acreage is planted to vine. Thankfully, less than two of the 500+ planted acres came into direct contact with the fire. In an effort to live up to our quality standards, we made the hard decision to not harvest the 2020 red grapes, sémillon or moscato from our Dollarhide Estate Vineyard due to its proximity to the LNU lightning complex fire. We were able to harvest some sauvignon blanc grapes before the fires and we want its proceeds to positively support the community who came to our aid to make this wine possible.
With each bottle sold of the 2020 St. Supéry Napa Valley Estate Sauvignon Blanc, $5 will be donated directly to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund. We recognize the need to replenish the fund as it continues offering community support. The opening donation of $10M to the fund was made by the Napa Valley Vintners in 2014 and has provided continued support during the tragedies that have impacted our community in recent years. The Fund provides immediate response grants for additional safety net services, like legal and housing assistance, as well as the launch of cash assistance available to homeowners and renters affected by the fires.

This recovery is going to be a collective effort. We thank you for all the love and positive thoughts. Stay safe, and here’s to 2021!
