This is an exciting time of year. Summer vacations are coming to an end. Kids are headed back to another year of school. We have Labor Day, youth sports games and homecoming dances to look forward to. Everyone in the United States is bidding adieu to the short summer months and settling back into their usual way of life, except for the folks here in The Golden State. We end our summers a little later in for the California Wine Month celebration. If you are visiting Southern California for the first time, this might become your favorite time of the year. :)
California Wine Month Celebration – September
It is harvest time in The Golden State. This means California wine tours and wine tastings like no other time a year. It doesn’t matter what part of the state you are in, there is bound to be a California wine celebration at your favorite vineyards. Some of the California wineries will even have open barrels for your wine tasting pleasure. One thing is for sure, you’ll walk into great deals on wine tours, wine tastings, hotels, inns and all kinds of local services that aren’t even relative to the vineyards. Hey! No one complains. They are down for all of the good deals.
