September is National California Wine Month and with over 4,400 wineries dispersed all over the golden state, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the many flavors harvested and bottled in California. The geologically diverse regions throughout the state create ideal growing climates for all types of grapes, which yield nearly 90 percent of all American wine production. To appropriately celebrate California Wine Month by trying a variety of different wines, we’ve compiled a list of the best places to sip and enjoy.
While it might not quite be time to bust out those sweaters and scarves, the start of September welcomes a craving for for all things warm, cozy and spiced.
