NAPA COUNTY (KPIX 5) — With California just days away from a full reopening, Napa County has already roared back to what many consider pre-pandemic speed.
The return of business has also brought a lot of smiles.
“For most people, there’s so much pent-up demand,” said Tom Davies, President of V. Sattui Winery. “People want to get out, they want to see other people. And I have to tell you, people are so happy.”
Aside from the mask rules, which feel like they’re barely hanging on, this felt a lot like any regular Friday at V. Sattui Winery. In fact, the business side of things here has made a full recovery.
“We track our sales, we track visitations daily,” Davies told KPIX 5. “Right now, when we’re comparing what we’re doing today, we’re looking back at 2019, and we’re tracking right at ’19. And that’s with visitation and with sales.”
