California Wine Month
Governor Jerry Brown proclaimed September, California Wine Month. September highlight the state's rich wine history and all that its vintners and growers add to the lifestyle and economy of the Golden State. We find something special about California wines every month, but there is something extra special in September as it is the beginning of crush. Come join the excitement at McGrail and taste wines where the grapes are grown!

Our Cabernet is coming along beautifully, we are very excited for the 2012 Vintage! We have been testing the brix levels (sugar levels) for our Chardonnay and it looks like we will be picking next week.
