Featured during the 'Week of Hospices 2017' will be a special silent auction with all proceeds going to Rebuild Wine Country - a California-based charity founded by wine industry leaders to benefit those affected by the devastating fires that recently swept through Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino counties.

"The fires raged just 15 minutes from our family home," Château de Pommard CEO, Michael Baum, explained. "Friends of ours have lost their homes and many residents are wondering how they will return to the places that have been destroyed. We feel compelled to help the least fortunate among the victims to move forward with their lives. As a global community of winemakers and wine lovers, we hope you will join us in whatever way you can."
