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 2015 wine festivals:
