Wine Country Harvest Time is Over? Now What?

November 11, 2016

All around Sonoma Napa wine country you can feel a sense of calm and relief. All the wine grapes have been harvested, everything is being put to sleep in barrels, and the fruit fly population is slowly but surely decreasing. You may think that last one isn’t a big deal, but if you live here you know how much better life is when you aren’t finding fruit flies in your wine every night. Now that the flurry of the 2016 harvest is over, what will we do to keep busy?

Thankfully Napa and Sonoma don’t shut down in the winter. It does slow a bit which is an advantage- a day of wine tasting is much more relaxed without the summer time throngs. And the wineries have more time to spend with you too. However, we are not just wine here in the wine country; we have many more things happening year round. Things like movie festivals, huge food and wine events, restaurant openings, the beginning of crab season, holiday parties and much more. It’s always a good time to visit wine country but especially between now and the New Year.
