About Napa Valley Harvest Party 2014

This is the most exciting time of the year in the Napa Valley. It’s the Napa Valley harvest party 2014. For the next several weeks, the “Crush” will take place. Vineyards are everywhere in the Napa Valley, as far and as wide as the eye can see. That is why the Napa Valley is ideal for catching the “Crush.” Wine country travelers will be able to see field workers hustling through the vineyards to fill their baskets with grapes. Trucks will be transporting 1/2 ton-grape bins to wineries for sorting and crushing. Fermenting tanks will be filled with grape juice. The smell of wine will be in the air. Harvest has already begun in the Napa Valley and will continue well into October. The last grapes to be harvested are Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

This Napa Valley welcome sign is one of the most photographed spots in the Napa Valley. This photo was shot in the morning and the sun was casting a shadow of the words “Napa Valley” on the soil behind the sign. In the background are vines ready to be harvested. The mountain peak behind the sign is Mount St. Johns in the Mayacamus Mountain Range.
