The Associated Press - October 10, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A Sioux Falls man with a Napa Valley connection is fearful the wildfires that have killed 11 people and caused widespread devastation will consume his business in wine country.

Dan Blue co-owns Jessup Cellars in Yountville near where the fires burned Tuesday. Blue tells KELO -TV the winery tasting room has lost power, as has much of the community. One of his partners, as well as their winemaker, have evacuated their homes.

Blue says the smoke in the air can get into the grapes so it will complicate the wine-making process. And if replanting the vineyards is necessary, it takes four years before it bears fruit.
