Boiling river of wine flows through burned down California winery

Oct 11, 2017

(FoxNews) - A scalding torrent of copper-colored wine flowed among burned wine barrels and charred fermented tanks at a California winery after flames swept through the area Tuesday, part of the devastating wildfires wreaking havoc on wine country.

The blaze engulfed Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, owned by Rene Byke, and burned barrels of wine and equipment. The owners of the winery confirmed the fire, saying they were “heartbroken” and “appreciate everyone’s well wishes.”

The winery posted on Facebook it would provide updates and vowed to stay “strong” and “rebuild” after the deadly wildfire.

The winery is one of several wine facilities affected by the fast-moving fires sweeping across Northern California’s wine country. Some reported “complete losses” while at least nine wineries said there was some damage. At least 21 people died and 180 others were injured since the fire began Sunday night. Firefighters attempting to contain the flames were met with gusty winds and thick smoke.
