Frey Winery Considers the Future After the Redwood Complex Fire in Mendocino – Nov 23, 2017

We’re hoping that people in our battered region are finding ways to be thankful this holiday weekend. The family behind the Frey Winery in Redwood Valley is looking toward the future, as they rebuild their business after the North Bay fires.

Four generations of the Frey family live and work at their winery in Redwood Valley. It was the first organic and biodynamic winery to open in the US. The October wildfires destroyed many structures on the site, while sparing most of the vineyards and the main house on the property. From KQED’s The California Report, April Dembosky takes us to the vineyard where the family is trying to figure out how to rebuild its business.
