16215 Main Street, Guerneville, CA 95446
A Percentage of Proceeds Benefit the North Bay Fire Relief Fund
Guerneville has a new merchant building with a wonderful compliment of offerings for the community and tourists! Owners Keri Y.K. Yhu and
Paul Bydalek did an excellent job remodeling the old Mercantile building on the corner of Main Street and Armstrong Woods Road. While they never thought it would take as long as it did to navigate the permit labyrinth, they never gave up and finished the building in time for two of the shops to open for Memorial Day weekend. Now that all the businesses are open, a grand opening is planned for the weekend of November 4th and 5th, with a ribbon cutting by the Russian River Chamber at 11:00 AM on November 4th. Each of the businesses will be donating a percentage of their proceeds to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. Each of the businesses will also donate an item to a raffle basket, with free tickets given to anyone who makes a purchase in any of the businesses. The drawing will take place at 4:00 PM on Sunday and the winner does not need to be present to win.

Equality Vines Tasting Room is the world’s first cause wine portfolio dedicated to equality for all people. For every bottle of wine sold, Equality Vines makes a donation to an organization dedicated to the fight for equality, with each line of wine supporting a different equality cause. The Love Wins line of wines supports LGBTQ non-profits, the Suffrage Series supports women’s rights, and future series will support other equality causes. The first wine in this special series, Love Wins Cuvee, honors Equality Vines Co-Founder Jim Obergefell and his late husband John Arthur for their legal fight that ended with the 2015 landmark Supreme Court decision Obergefell v. Hodges, bringing marriage equality to the entire United States.
