Fall Wine Festivals

As we are enjoying fall, wineries in the Northern Hemisphere are hard at work harvesting their grapes from the vines. So you’ll find that September and October make a great time to stop at a vineyard and enjoy a wine tasting.

Another way to sample the wine from their vineyards is at a fall wine festival. Local wineries will offer samples of their wines for guests to try. Wine festivals are popular because they are an easy way to try a large number of different grapes, vintages, and wineries. At the end of the event, buy a couple bottles of your favorite wines and enjoy them later at home or at a byob. There’s also usually food and entertainment at the festival to make sure that everyone has a good time.

Everyone from the beginning wine enthusiast to the certified wine snob should be able to enjoy these fall wine festivals:
