And even though our NorCal weather stays pretty mild as we move into winter, we do get the early sunsets, the frost-encrusted morning windshields, and the vibrantly colored leaves – especially those gracing our vineyards – that mark the start of The Holidays.
Since Thanksgiving is just a week from Thursday, I thought I’d lead up to the big event with a fun, festive and flavorsome Top 10 Countdown.So, for each of the next ten days, I’ll be bringing you something to help kick off the season.
It might be a tasty recipe for your Turkey Day table, a wine tasting, some cool Farmers Market pix of our autumn bounty – or anything else intriguing that pops up between now and then.
Make sure to come back every day to see what’s new!
Here’s our first installment…
10 DAYS AND COUNTING –
Fall Foliage, Wine Country Style!
Soon the vines will be bare. But for now, the changing leaves have been putting on quite a show.
Napa is just a bit further on, and less-traveled (but no less worthy) wine regions, such as Mendocino and Livermore, are close enough for an easy day trip.
With postcard-pretty vineyards, stunning winery architecture and comfy tasting rooms, all four seasons in Wine Country are pretty darn gorgeous.But I save a special spot in my heart for autumn. I hope these vineyard photos will show you exactly why.
And except for their brief captions, I’ll just let them speak for themselves…
I do hope you’ve enjoyed this colorful seasonal peek at Fall Foliage, Wine Country Style! Tomorrow, we’ll get an early start on National Zinfandel Day, with a heads-up on an amazing tasting event…
Until next time, my friends,
Cheers and happy tastings,
