Things are moving right along and believe it or not the Thanksgiving holiday is nearly here.

Here are a couple events slated for this weekend that will be worthwhile if you’re looking to taste and/or stock-up on some solid Napa Valley juice.

Harvest time in the vineyards

Saturday, November 21st

  • From 8am – 4pm Baldacci Family Vineyards, which is located at 6236 Silverado Trail, will host its first annual ‘garage sale’. That means you’ll be able to find several Baldacci Family wines for sale–many at discounted prices. In fact, the winery is promising to have 50% off some current vintages and it also plans to bring some past vintages from the cellar, including Cabernets from 2000 and 2004. Call 707-944-9261 for more information

Saturday, November 21st and Sunday, November 22nd

  • From 10am – 4pm on both days the annual Holiday in Carneros event will take place at more than 20 Carneros wineries. For $40 per person (valid for both days), you’ll be able to visit all participating wineries (including Ceja Vineyards, Folio Winemakers’ Studio, Truchard Vineyards and more) to sample (and purchase) wine, enjoy food, listen to music and generally interact with winery staff (including a few winemakers). Proceeds from the event will fund scholarships at Santa Rosa Junior College and Napa Valley College. Call 800-909-4352 for more information
