Bins of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are placed on a conveyor before being sorted and crushed during harvest at the Cardinale winery Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, in Oakville, Calif. The winery reopened to the public Thursday after being closed during last week’s wildfires. The wildfires that have devastated California this month caused at least $1 billion in damage to insured property, officials said Thursday, as authorities raised the number of homes and other buildings destroyed to nearly 7,000.
