Rebuild Wine Country is spearheaded by a group of volunteer wine industry professionals from both Sonoma County & Napa Valley. Founded by the team behind Senses Wines, the Rebuild Wine Country leadership team grew organically through relationships between like-minded individuals that wanted to give back to their communities in need. These industry leaders form the backbone of our organization, committed to our long-term mission.
