A massive fire in the Marlborough region of New Zealand that began on Boxing Day (December 26) in 2000, and over the next three days charred thousands of acres, killed thousands of animals, and threatened the wine town of Blenheimand its surrounding vineyards.

The2013 Fire Road Pinot Noir was made from grapes grown in vineyards that were saved from that fire, the fire was bad, but it could have been much worse.  The brave residents put up a valiant effort in battling the blaze with whatever tools they had at their disposal, from hand-held hoses to buckets. Finally, a fortuitous shift in the wind saved the town and its wineries. The area became known as Fireroad (one word), and provided the inspiration for the Fire Road (two words) wine label.
