While many vintners are busy bringing in their winegrapes, others are on the road and involved in a different staple of harvest season: the promotion of September as California Wine Month.
In the photo above, taken today on the balcony of Grand Central Station, three Napa Valley vintners (left to right: Dick Ward of Saintsbury, Kathleen Heitz Myers of Heitz Wine Cellars, and Suzanne Groth of Groth Vineyards & Winery) pour for invited trade buyers and wine media.
Napa Valley winery promotions of California Wine Month include:
- Consumer, trade, and media tasting in New York City, September 14-16 and September 26
- Consumer, trade, and media tastings in Chicago, September 15-17
- Winery-based events in Napa Valley
