Napa Valley September Events
- CALISTOGA FARMERS MARKET: This weekly event is in full swing by September with the Wine Country's bounty available in all its glory. From fresh fruits and vegetables to flowers and herbs, the sensory delights are endless. There is often live entertainment and you may sample some of the local wares while enjoying resident musicians. This event takes place Saturdays from 8:30am to 12:30pm from June through September in downtown Calistoga. Call 707.942.0808 for information.
- ROMANTIC FALL GETAWAY: In September one of the most popular romantic getaways is a weekend for two at one of the Wine Country's premier spas, dinner and wine at a world renowned Napa Valley restaurant and last but certainly not least, a once in a lifetime balloon ride over the Napa Valley during the fall harvest. There are several ballooning companies to choose from. It is important to note that they all have early sunrise flights, as this is when conditions are best, so do stay overnight the night before. Visit www.goldenhavenspa.com for accommodations.
- CRUSH: By the middle of September the grape harvest is in full swing and there is no better time to experience the Wine Country at its finest than during the fall harvest. During September many Napa Valley wineries have barrel tastings, unique winery tours, and wine and cheese-parings as well as allowing visitors to view the crush up close and personal.
