Cheers to Golden State wine: September is California Wine Month! Enjoy Paso wine events, like a sunset hayride at Doce Robles Winery and Vineyard on Sept. 8, a musical barbecue at Still Waters Vineyards on Sept. 10, or head south for a swath of cool tasting room events in Edna Valley and Santa Maria (find events at discovercaliforniawines.com) ... While some local wineries are just hopping on the harvest train, Monterey County is already going full-steam ahead! If you're into cool climate varieties and sparkling wine grapes (being harvested right now), a road trip may be in order (go to montereywines.org). Δ
