In Face of Drought, Napa Valley Witches Conjure Water With Magic

 An admittedly unreal image of Napa Valley water witches.

California has just creaked through its driest January on record and is staring down a fourth year of crippling drought—and everyone is talking about it.

But for some winemakers in Napa Valley, the answer lies in more mystical methods that hail from medieval times.
