October in the Napa Valley
October is a very busy month in the Napa Valley! With harvest in full speed, many wineries are hosting harvest festivals and crush parties. In addition, this month offers many different fun and festive events in celebration of Halloween. Our team has compiled a list of events that you and your family may enjoy attending. We are always here to help and hope you have a wonderful month and a Happy Halloween!
Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of a winemaker is like? Or what it would feel like to be swept up in the exhilarating energy of harvest?
If you’ve visited Napa Valley in those critical weeks while Harvest is in full swing, you know that the air is alive with the electric pulse of a myriad hands picking grapes, crush-pads wet with the sticky juice of newly pressed classic Napa Valley varieties, and the scent of new barrels and pomace permeating the air. If you’ve ever wanted to experience Harvest like a winemaker, we are offering a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: The Harvest Napa Valley Experience. Source: LocalWineEvents.com

HenHouse Brewing Company is beyond stoked to present a very special beer festival on October 12th in collaboration with the Bay Area Brewers Guild! The Freshtival is a celebration of freshness that we intend to make an annual must for all of Sonoma County. This wouldn’t be an event that HenHouse is championing if it wasn’t crazy ambitious, so we’ve decided to feature only beers at the height of freshness - meaning all of the beer poured in the main festival area will have been packaged on or after October 5th. That’s right, well over 100 different beers less than 7 days old, in perfect, brewery-fresh condition! Source: henhousebrewing.com
In his twenty-year career as a San Francisco-based musician, Hayes has won acclaim from fans and critics alike. He’s duetted with Aimee Mann, toured with Ani DiFranco and the Cold War Kids, been covered by The Be Good Tanyas and re-mixed by DJ Mark Farina, and had his music featured in a variety of television shows, films, and commercials. Low Light thrums with songs of desire, sanctuary, and the redemptive power of love. Source: visitnapavalley.com
