Love Wine? Sonoma’s Grape Camp Is Your Dream Vacation

During the harvest, Sonoma is a universe unto itself. The sweet aroma of grapes swirls in September’s warm air. Under stars and into the early-morning light, grapes are picked—one bucket at a time—among the vines in the county’s 60,000 acres of fields. People are exhausted but giddy, remembering anew why they’ve made a life around the sweet juice of this small fruit.

At tasting rooms around the county, visitors can listen in on discussions of the harvest. But to truly drink it all in, there’s no beating the hands-on, right-in-the-middle-of-it-all immersion of Sonoma County Grape Camp. From harvesting in the fields to blending sessions in wineries and festive alfresco dinners, this annual three-day event put together by the grape growers themselves offers a unique chance to get behind the scenes in Sonoma at its most exciting time of year. Ready for a taste?
