One of the many reasons October is a great time to visit California’s wine country is because the region is alive with events celebrating the harvest season, new wine releases, and the arrival of autumn.
Here are some events from the Golden State that we’re looking forward to this month:
October 13th, 2PM – 5PM | Lincourt Vineyards
Surrounded by California pepper trees and overlooking the Alamo Pintado Vineyard near Solvang, Lincourt Vineyards retains the rural charm and simplicity of an earlier era. They’ll be celebrating this year’s harvest with some “cellar flair” during their Cellar-bration!, featuring traditional style street tacos straight off the grill, head-bobbin’ tunes from “The Tex Pistols,” and barrel samples right from the barrel. Can’t make it to Solvang for the event? Cash in on their Cellar Sale — 30% off the purchase of six or more bottles! More details on how to redeem this offer can be found on the event page, along with ticket information.
