Thank you to all of you for your continued support, thoughts and prayers as we face the impact of the Glass Fire. We will be updating this page as more information comes in from our member wineries regarding their status and the damage caused.

Bergman Family Vineyards 

Bergman Family Vineyards is a family-owned vineyard and ranch located on 40 acres of lower Spring Mountain.  We are reporting no fire damage currently but heavy smoke is limiting visibility.

Fires are active in two locations near our property at this time (Wednesday 9/30/20 at 12:30). Cal Fire is using our property to traverse between knolls of current active fires, including the fire near Stony Hill and near the old ‘Christmas tree’ property at the end of Bea Lane.

We hope everyone stays safe and appreciate all the support from the community that we have received, especially the fire crew at Cal Fire’s Big Tree Road station.

Fantesca

We are fortunate to share that our team is safe and winery is largely unscathed following the recent fires. While we lost equipment and our outdoor tasting deck, we know these things can be replaced. The safety of our team is our highest priority, and our thoughts are with our neighbors and community who suffered more devastating losses. As we have in the past, we look forward to dusting off our boots, coming together as a community and growing from this experience.

Spring Mountain Vineyard

Spring Mountain VineyardHere at SMV, thankfully everyone is safe but the fire has taken a raging toll. Flames and intense heat quickly swept through the entire property and essentially vaporized most of our historic buildings that date back over a century, quickly reducing them and our stately forests to ashes. Though the bravery of our vineyard manager, Ron Rosenbrand, the dedicated firefighters who put their safety on the line for ours, and the sheer grace of God, I am grateful to report that our main winery, our caves and the legendary Miravalle mansion were saved.
