Napa Valley and Paso Robles Wine Country Travel Guides
From Napa Valley Vintners:
“With warm weather continuing into September, the pace of the 2013 Napa Valley wine grape harvest has accelerated. The picking of white wine grapes, especially aromatic varieties, is nearly finished and the harvesting of red wine grapes including Pinot Noir, Merlot and Malbec is in full swing. After a spell of hot weather last week, the marine influence is again being felt in Napa Valley contributing to the development of balanced sugars and acids that portend the makings of another quality vintage.”
The Annual Wine Harvest is the Grapest Story Ever Told!
I stole that line from the Napa Valley Vintners website. Kinda cute, huh?
Our favorite places to visit for California wines are the Napa Valley, and Paso Robles. Napa Valley for obvious reasons, and Paso Robles for a glimpse of what Napa Valley might have been like 30 years ago.
You can still get a fabulous bottle of wine in Paso Robles for thirty bucks!

Hmmm. I see that we haven’t been back to Napa Valley to complete our northern guide. I think we should take care of that little problem very soon. 🙂
If you don’t mind massive crowds of people, all of the various wine regions have harvest festivals that are certain to also be a lot of fun. Just Google grape harvest for your favorite area.
