Grape gatherings galore: Your guide to October wine events

Here in the Bay Area, one of the best things about fall is the veritable crush of amazing wine events. Tastings in town, festivals in the vineyards… One of these years we swear they’re going to run out of grapes.

Thankfully, that hasn’t happened yet. And it’s not just Northern California that has excellent wine events this month. There are great October grape gatherings happening all over the country (and well beyond). Check out the list below and find the one for you!
