September_2013_LargeAs summer winds down and September ushers in the cooler weather, farms and vineyards like Westport Rivers Winery begin of one of their busiest times of year: the grape harvest! This month’s digital desktop calendar features a lovely image of some of Westport Rivers’ grapes, as seen in our newest book, The Coastal Table by Karen J. Covey.

Head to one of these picturesque vineyards this fall to take full advantage of  great local wine and some fun fall events, including outdoor concerts and harvest work days (like this grape stomping festival at Truro Vineyards!).  Sip on Westport Rivers’ bubbly Farmer’s Fizz or crisp Pinot Blanc while overlooking sweeping fields of grapes set against New England’s famed autumn landscapes. Or try their newly released 2012 Grüner Veltliner. Westport Rivers describes it as “a refreshing, medium-bodied white wine with stone fruit flavors and subtle white pepper on the nose.” To learn more about the vineyards and the region’s picturesque Coastal Wine Trail, pick up a copy of The Coastal Tableit’s also packed with delicious fall recipes you’ll be dying to try!
