Fall In Wine Country

Fall In Wine Country

Fall is a wonderful time of year as we begin to truly experience the change from summer heat towards mild temperatures, passing rain showers and the welcoming autumn colors.  When clients and friends ask, “What is the best time to visit wine country?”, I always have to respond that anytime is a great time to visit Napa and Sonoma, and other areas.  Each season has its signature whether it is during a stream filled winter, or ultra green spring, the golden brown backdrop of summer and of course color filled fall.

We are looking forward to the rest of fall and the coming winter months.  Rain has already begun and we anticipate heavier precipitation as we venture further towards winter.  In the meantime, enjoy the video and take a quick stroll through a fall time vineyard in wine country.
