Celebrate the Wine Harvest in Napa Valley
- August 31, 2018
Here in Napa Valley wine country, we’re never sad to see summer go. As the days get shorter, we know that life goes on and the summer sun did maybe its most important job – growing and nurturing the grapes on our vines until one of the most exciting times of the year: Wine Harvest! Although certain varietals are harvested early, in August, September is when the majority of our grapes mature enough to gather for making wine! The whole valley buzzes with excitement all month, making it a great time to visit!
One fun thing that needs to be on your bucket list is a Grape Stomp. Historically, grapes were pressed the old fashioned way – by rolling up your cuffs and getting messy! This is a fun, interactive way to experience the wine making process, and nobody can do it without breaking into a huge grin. Check out the daily Grape Stomp at Grgich Hills Estate!
Harvest Parties are a great way to experience the Wine Harvest. Nearly every vineyard in the Napa Valley puts on its own celebration of the season, and there’s a real sense of competition to see who can put on the best soiree. Wood-fired pizzas are served with the finest of that wineries vintage, and as the evening begins you get to dance in the idyllic shade of grape leaves. We’re looking forward to Benessere Winery’s Harvest Party and Grape Stomp this year, but here are a list of Harvest Parties you might want to attend!
There’s really nothing like harvest season in the Napa Valley – that’s why you should book a room at the Hotel Indigo Napa Valley. We offer an upscale experience deep in the heart of wine country that’s a perfect complement to your vacation! Rooms are already filling up for this Wine Harvest season so don’t delay!
