Harvest is here in Napa Valley!
- September 14, 2018
It’s here! The moment that all of the Napa Valley has been waiting for has finally arrived: Harvest! Every vineyard in the valley is buzzing with activity and excitement as they the grapes they’ve been carefully growing all year achieve peak ripeness, making September the perfect time to begin the winemaking process!
It’s a wonderful time of year; hard work and excitement combine with the natural tranquility of the vines, making for a truly intoxicating atmosphere of camaraderie and celebration, and if you’ve never experienced it you owe it to yourself to come visit.
Are you a wine connoisseur? This is a great time to peer behind the curtains and learn everything there is to know about what makes the wines of the Napa Valley so outstanding. Winery tours are never more compelling than at harvest time! In particular, we can recommend Stags Leap Districts’ Pine Ridge Vineyards interactive tours. Pine Ridge actually ages their wines traditionally in a system of caves, combining old world knowledge with new-world technology. We recommend finishing your tour with a meal in their Cellar 47 Tasting Lounge, which is actually in the caves.
Not an expert, but you “know what you like?” Then you’ll like the fun events taking place all month long, including BBQs, concerts, catered meals designed to show off the best of our wineries vintages and dancing all through the night. Nearly every winery in town has a fun and informal party celebrating Harvest; check out this list and pick out your faves!
Even better, book a room at the Hotel Indigo Napa Valley, and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to give you recommendations and book your reservations at the hottest shindigs in town! Hurry up or you’ll miss Harvest, though… but keep in mind that next month is Wine Crush! Either way you’re going to have a great time in the Napa Valley.
