TASTE News Service September 1, 2014 - This September, California is celebrating the 10th anniversary of California Wine Month, a month-long celebration of festivals, events and demonstrations showcasing California's wine bounty.

While California's wine harvest season occurs every fall, this September marks a decade of statewide collaboration, making this year the year to visit. Kicking off Labor Day weekend and running through September, winegrowers and winemakers are pulling out all the stops, offering visitors even more opportunities to explore California's vast wine country. From personalized wine making and bottling experiences to weekend-long wine-and-dine festivals and events, destinations up and down the Golden State are joining forces to offer visitors the “best of” wine experiences. California certainly knows its wine, boasting more than 3,500 wineries and accounting for roughly 43% of all wineries in the U.S.

Editor's note: More information about events celebrating California Wine Month is available at http://www.discovercaliforniawines.com/californiawinemonth/. Also, the Resource Directory of Taste California Travel has links to the websites of most of the state's wineries, as well as links to the sites of thousands of Lodging and Dining opportunities for those visiting California wine country.
