Anyone who’s ever spent time in wine country during the annual wine grape harvest will recognize a familiar scent in the air. As grapes come in across the valley and the fermentation process begins, the early morning and late evening air is often filled with an enchanting (at least for us wine lovers) aroma from the fruit.

Our friends at Lail Vineyards described the scent as the “most exotic perfume” in the world. Have you had a whiff? If so, let us know what you thought and where in the valley you find it most noticeable.

Don’t miss these four other signs that mark the annual wine grape harvest.
