Fall Is the Best Time
Fall in wine country means a frenzy of activity, making it one of the best times of the year to pay a visit to an American wine region. From the smell of fresh-cut grapes wafting through the air to the sights and sounds of harvest workers, tractors and forklifts working their magic, the entire Anderson Valley is abuzz throughout Autumn, and the warm days, cool nights and changing foliage only amplify its seasonal appeal.
If you’re planning an Anderson Valley trip of your own this fall, here’s what to know before you go.
What to Pack
If complimentary tastings at eight of Anderson Valley’s local wineries sounds up your alley, scoop up a Covet Pass, a first-of-its-kind wine pass that grants you exclusive access to free tastings at not only Anderson Valley wineries, but also select destinations throughout Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Lake County and Valle de Guadalupe. With the average wine tasting now costing around $30 (and higher in some areas), the $150 pass pays for itself fast and comes with some additional perks for wine fans, too.
