The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Geyersville home of Julia Jackson, a second-generation proprietor of Jackson Family Wines, was found to be another structure that fell victim to Wednesday evening’s devastating Kincade Fire, which set over 10,000 acres ablaze overnight.
She didn’t learn of the horrific news until it was too late – the fire was just four miles away.
“The flames were coming down toward the house,” Jackson told The Chronicle’s wine critic Esther Mobley. “I didn’t have time to grab anything.”
It had been her home since childhood.
Jackson Family Wines is the maker of Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay and is the ninth-largest company of its kind in the country, The Chronicle reports.
The blaze damaged two large buildings at deLorimier Winery’s Crazy Creek vineyard. Grapevines were also reportedly burning at the Murphy Ranch Winery. A number of vineyards have confirmed they are safe, including The Francis Ford Coppola Winery, the Robert Young Estate Winery and Trione Vineyards and Winery.
