After nearly 40 years of running trips in Napa and Sonoma Counties, our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent fires. During this emergency, Backroads staff donated money (matched by Backroads) and time, by volunteering at food banks, shuttling donations in Backroads vans and providing security at shelters.

Moving forward, we believe the best way to help with recovery efforts is to support the local establishments that employ the residents of affected areas. After conversations with our vendors and friends in Napa and Sonoma Counties, Backroads is again running all trips in the region. To support the communities affected by the fires, Backroads will donate 5% of all proceeds from 2017 and 2018 trips running in Napa and Sonoma, through December of this year. This contribution to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund will directly support community rebuilding efforts. Our Trip Leaders are excited to get back to leading trips and sharing their love of the Wine Country with you!
