September = California Wine Month

It’s official.  The governer decreed it: September 2014 is California Wine Month.  Not every September, just this one as an effort to boost morale and let tourists know that we’re still here and we still have lovely grapes to harvest and wines to pour and sell.

Governor Brown includes a history of the wine industry in this State (and we thought he’d talk about economic impact):  http://gov.ca.gov/news.php?id=18686

Below are a couple photos we took this week of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes ripening in the afternoon sun in St. Helena.  Cheers!
