Labor Day Weekend in Wine Country

Posted on August 12, 2019

It is hard to believe that the summer months are coming to an end as we quickly approach Labor Day weekend. While summer weather is still in full swing here in Napa, what better way to celebrate than a trip to wine country? The vines are in full bloom and utterly breathtaking as the wineries in Napa get ready for Harvest Season. With the valley in its peak time in summer, there are so many things to enjoy this upcoming holiday weekend.

As we mentioned the wineries in Napa are beginning, if they have not already done so, the Harvest Season. When the grapes are picked from the vineyards and begin the fermentation process to become our favorite beverage in a wine glass. What better way to kick off this season than at the annual “Blessing of the Grapes at Grgich Hills Estate”! This traditional event is over thirty years old at Grgich Hills and truly represents the exciting start to harvest. Everyone is welcome to join the event complimentary, so bring your friends and family. Sip on a glass of wine and experience the first day of the iconic grape stomp at Grgich. You do not want to miss this to start off your Labor Day weekend on Friday August 30th starting at 10am!

Indulge in a Labor Day Lobster Feed at the beautiful Solage Resort in charming Calistoga. This iconic resort in wine country is the luxurious and stunning experience you do not want to miss! This Lobster Feed is the perfect way to continue the Labor Day celebrations accompanied with live music.

In addition to some incredible events taking place in the valley, look to experience all the beauty in wine country on Labor Day. With warm weather this time of year, get outside on one of Napa hiking or biking trails, or spend a wonderful summer evening with the family cheering on the local Silverados baseball team before the season ends. Looking for a romantic date night? The views of the vineyards including the Silverado Trail wineries are truly beautiful in Harvest Season.

Speaking of wine, visiting the wineries in Napa for this long holiday weekend is another great way to celebrate. Call ahead at 707-253-2723 and make sure you book your reservation!
