It is officially harvest season for wine country in the United States. Every year, from August to October, workers race to pick as many grapes as possible as they reach peak ripeness. Use this busy and exciting time as an excuse for a weekend trip to Napa. Not only will you be able to taste an array of exceptional wines, but you’ll get to see the action firsthand.
For those looking for the quintessential Napa experience, be sure to visit Artesa Vineyards & Winery, Domaine Carneros, and Darioush Winery. Considered some of the best wineries in the country, Napa Valley is sure to excite the most discerning of travelers. Although Napa is most well known for its rolling hills and sprawling vineyards, there are also many non-tourist options to explore. Dakota Sky and Favia Wines offer smaller selections and a more intimate setting for wine tasting. From the casual dining experience of Charter Oak to the area’s culinary pinnacle of the French Laundry, the area offers something for everyone.
