Autumn in the wine country means the end of the harvest and a slower pace in the vineyards. The leaves on the vines turn bright yellow and red before they drop and the vines go dormant for winter.
So for now, we enjoy the last warm days of the season and the wines of harvests past.

Wow, this reads like prose. Are you a grower?

Do you often make it northwards? I was actually thinking of how much I'd like to be in Mendocino an hour or two back.

@Sir Walshington No, not a grower, but I've worked in a number of wineries, doing everything from tours and tastings to wine chemistry. Sonoma is a pretty small town, so what happens in the vineyards is reflected in the activity of the town.

@wondermade I don't get up to Mendocino very often, but get over to Yountville, St Helena, and Calistoga pretty frequently. Also get down to Central Coast wine country (Monterey, Santa Barbara) a couple of times a year.
