Wildfires raging in northern California have not only destroyed thousands of homes and businesses and displaced 20,000 locals, but they'll also have a lasting impact on California's wine country and local tourism.
Since Sunday, wildfires have scorched 115,000 acres of land across the region, which is also the cradle of American wine production.
Strong winds and dry conditions have been feeding the flames, destroying or causing serious damage to at least four Napa Valley wineries.
The four vineyards include White Rock Vineyards, Signorello Estate, Paradise Ridge, and Ancient Oak Cellars.
Between Napa Valley and Sonoma County, the region is home to more than 1,000 wineries and dozens of America's top fine dining establishments including Thomas Keller's world famous restaurant The French Laundry, which was closed earlier this week due to power failures.
In 2016, the region's wine growers and production generated US$56 billion to the local economy.
While most of the grapes were harvested earlier this season, the fire, ash and smoke could put vineyards out of commission for several seasons and reduce future vintages.
"Accurate assessments of vineyard and winery damage cannot be made until the fires are contained," reads a statement from The Wine Institute, which represents California wine makers.
"It is too early to know what effect the fires may have on the 2017 harvest or wines from the vintage of these regions. Fortunately, the majority of grapes were harvested earlier in the season."
