    Hello everyone...

    I noticed that Yountville, CA was the epicenter for the recent 5.2 earthquake. I was wondering if there was any serious damage to Thomas Keller's restaurant "The French Laundry" located there in Yountville. Also, any word on how the earthquake will affect any supply or current vintages from Napa wineries?

    Thanks.

    Paul

    Apparently, from what I've read, there was little damage to the wineries. Oh, a couple bottles and glasses were broken, but nothing major that I've heard. I also heard some people called The French Laundry thinking they could get in thinking people would cancel their res. FL said no one cancelled their res. People still flocked to the wine country for Labor Day weekend.
