September is California Wine Month

On August 19, 2010, Governor Schwarzenegger declared September as “California Wine Month.” In the one page proclamation, Gov. Schwarzenegger mentions the history of California winemaking and the future. He notes that this is an “important industry.” The proclamation briefly includes statistics about the industry including that the wine community supports 820,000 jobs countrywide.

Part of the proclamation states, “For the month of September, I encourage all Californians to appreciate the world-renowned wine industry we have right here in our backyard.” The proclamation goes on to suggest touring a local winery, taking a tasting class or enjoying a glass of wine.

If you are looking for specific activities consider these California events below.

26th Annual Winesong
September 10-11

Temecula Valley Wine & Culinary Showcase
Friday, September 17

Sonoma Valley Crush
September 18-19

While many people think of local wine as excluding major US wine regions, for the people who live in those areas it is their backyard. Anyone who enjoys wine should try the wines in their own backyard as well as other areas of the country.

Cheers! Kathy
