Autumn is for Harvest
As the trees start to turn to golden and amber hues, the days get shorter and cooler, and the “normal” schedule resumes for most people; farmers’ lives shift into a higher gear. Harvest has begun for our wineries and it is one of the busiest times of the year for these farmers. Because truly this is where it all happens. On the farm. Without good quality fruit there cannot be good quality wine.
It is also one of the most beautiful times to visit our area. The colours of autumn can take away your breath when you’re standing at the top of a vineyard looking over the lake, or looking up to Peachcliff Mountain.
Check out local events and to make it easier to plan your trip, including hours for each of our wineries. Double check wineries’ websites before you go. Some require reservations. The links are provided for you.
Save the date!! Our annual Holiday Cheer event is November 19 and 20. More details soon, including information about a great prize package!
If you enjoyed a good glass of wine today, thank a farmer!
