Napa Earthquake

Billions Of Dollars Of Wine Lost In California Earthquake

A big loser in West Coast quake: Napa Valley wineries

Ovadia 1:5-6
אִם-גַּנָּבִים בָּאוּ-לְךָ, אִם-שׁוֹדְדֵי לַיְלָה--אֵיךְ נִדְמֵיתָה, הֲלוֹא יִגְנְבוּ דַּיָּם; אִם-בֹּצְרִים בָּאוּ לָךְ, הֲלוֹא יַשְׁאִירוּ עֹלֵלוֹת

אֵיךְ נֶחְפְּשׂוּ עֵשָׂו, נִבְעוּ מַצְפֻּנָיו

If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night--how art thou cut off!--would they not steal till they had enough? If grape-gatherers came to thee, would they not leave some gleaning grapes?

How is Esau searched out! How are his hidden places sought out!

אִם-בֹּצְרִים בָּאוּ לָךְ, לֹא יַשְׁאִרוּ עוֹלֵלוֹת; אִם-גַּנָּבִים בַּלַּיְלָה, הִשְׁחִיתוּ דַיָּם

כִּי-אֲנִי חָשַׂפְתִּי אֶת-עֵשָׂו, גִּלֵּיתִי אֶת-מִסְתָּרָיו, וְנֶחְבָּה, לֹא יוּכָל; שֻׁדַּד זַרְעוֹ וְאֶחָיו וּשְׁכֵנָיו, וְאֵינֶנּוּ

If grape-gatherers came to thee, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, would they not destroy till they had enough?

But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself; his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not.

I would like to take this opportunity to inform the wine drinking public that here in Israel we have dozens if not hundreds of wineries, some of them whose wines have won awards at international competitions.

Here's a thought that ran through my mind: In Rabbi Tauber's, "Days Are Coming" sefer, he outlines the 15 signs before Moshiach. One of those signs is "Wine will be expensive. He writes that it means that the "good life" will be plentiful, yet expensive. People will desire it as well etc...
Do you think there is a connection here with this?

Leah, that's another interesting connection.

Rabbi Tauber's book (which I also read over 20 years ago) gets it from the Mishna in Sotah 49b.

Israel is preparing for the wine hidden in the grapes of the 6 days of creation , ie the rebbes maimar . As well King David will raise the cup of salvation to Bless and he says " Im fit to Bless "! King David is called Holy Gaiva , the highest attribute to have according to Breslov chassidus. On a side note Im sure Hashem will back up King David in regards to his wrath at the vatican taking his burial spot.
