In October, a firestorm devastated Northern California wine country.
"It was quite a shock to wake up early in the morning, probably around 2 a.m., and look out your window and see a ring of fire around the hills," said Kendall Hoxsey-Onysko, a manager with Napa Wine Company.
"Each day it got progressively worse," Hoxsey-Onysko said. "Because all of the power was out, you really didn't even know what was the truth and what was an exaggeration."
The fires are out now. While the remnants of the destruction remain, people in the area agree that conditions are moving in a much better direction.
"Everyone's just taking stock of what areas need attention and what we need to prepare for in the future," Hoxsey-Onysko said. "I see people coming back now to Napa and Sonoma. Perhaps we'll look for the best way to make this place the wonderland that it is."
