"September is the most beautiful time of year to visit wine country,” says Nick Palumbo, owner/winemaker of Palumbo Family Vineyards and president of the Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association.  “The beginning of our harvest season is evident everywhere and the excitement level is high. Visitors have a good chance of seeing grapes being processed into wine or gondolas towed by tractors along the wine country roads.”
