Summer's Last Few Precious Days! Enjoy Them With Wine Recommendations for September 2010

The wine recommendations for September 2010 are signaling the last few precious days of summer, and also the exiting harvest to come!

September brings with it a heavy doze of mixed emptions. On the one hand we see summer coming to an end; those lazy days and starry nights will soon be gone. On the other, we can feel the excitement of harvest time. The vineyards are bursting with fruit, and the wineries are gearing up for the busiest time of the year.

It is also a time of hope and possibility. It is very much like baseball spring training, when every team dreams of the World Series. Similarly the winemaker dreams of a wonderful harvest, and the promise of great wines to come!

The wines we found are excellent quality at very good prices. They come from various countries; and they are an interesting look at winemaking from Argentina to Greece!

Explore and enjoy the wine recommendations for September 2010!
