ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Constellation Brands has announced that their facilities were minimally impacted after wildfires tore through Northern California.

On Tuesday, Constellation Brands released the following statement: 

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those impacted by the devastating wildfires in Northern California.  We are grateful for the efforts of fire fighters and emergency responders involved in containing the fires and keeping people safe. 
 
All Constellation Brands employees living in the area are safe and accounted for, and our facilities were minimally impacted by the fires. 
 
We are committed to doing our part to help our fellow employees and neighbors in Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties recover and rebuild. Our facilities and tasting rooms are back up and running. In addition, we’ve contributed more than $250,000 to several organizations involved in recovery efforts, including the Redwood Empire Food Bank, the Napa Valley Community Foundation, and the American Red Cross. Furthermore, Constellation Brands has matched employee contributions made to these organizations 2:1.
