Pinnacle Emergency Management is proud to announce that it broke ground on Monday, February 5 as the construction company to rebuild Helwig Winery’s wine production facility which burned down in May 2017. This building, which housed critical operations for the winery, included its wine production and laboratory space, executive offices and a commercial kitchen that supports the catering for many year-round private events as well as their popular summer concert series. After breaking ground, the facility is expected to be completed in early August.

“We have been honored to be able to assist in the clean-up and restoration of this critical facility over the past few months for Helwig Winery’s operations,” explained Leo Grover, owner of Pinnacle Emergency Management. “We look forward to getting this rebuild completed this summer, so they can be fully operational again before the 2018 crush.”

“This building was the heart of our operation,” explained Helwig Winery owner, Dave Helwig. “Without the support of our staff, the Amador winemaking community and great partners like Pinnacle, 2017 could have been a devastating year for us. We are grateful for the support and new relationship with Pinnacle that will help us get back to normal operations for our 2018 crush.”

Pinnacle Emergency Management has worked with many commercial businesses in the greater Sacramento region since 2005. Pinnacle helps business owners navigate the very complicated process of managing multiple insurance policies, adjusters, abatement issues, permitting and many other elements post-disaster that would be overwhelming without that consulting guidance. In addition to the consulting, Pinnacle is a licensed contractor that can handle everything in a disaster from clean up and salvage to remodeling or complete reconstruction.

“I’m not an expert in fire insurance or have the time to manage a construction project. I’m grateful for Pinnacle’s guidance and management of this process from beginning to end. It gives me peace of mind not having to manage all those elements but instead have one point of contact I can trust. Then I can focus on our continuing operations and planning,” added Helwig.
