My plea to all of you is to make plans in the future to come visit Wine Country, writes Katie Bundschu in a post-wildfire email with an update on her family Sonoma winery Gundlach Bundshu.

Gundlach Bundshu is one of about two dozen wineries damaged in a series of fires ignited in Northern California's over a week ago. The Napa County, Sonoma County, and Mendocino County fires scorched the rural countryside and ravaged entire neighborhoods. (Find an up-to-date list of damaged wineries.)
Fire devoured the Bundshu’s family home and vines on a hillside, but the winery, the guest house and the barn, all built over 100 years ago, survived.
Gundlach Bundshu is closed through the week as they spiff up the property, but they’ll be welcoming visitors soon (visit their Facebook page for updates) and hundreds of other wineries that weren't impacted by the fire have tasting rooms open to visitors.
While it might not look as bucolic as it once did, the people and hospitality will be stronger than ever and eventually, over time the beauty that we've come to love will return; Katie writes.
