Robert Thomas Vineyard - Russian River Valley, CA (J Vineyards)

Happy Halloween, my libation-loving friends.

As the streets are filled with sugar-craving, maniacal little beasties going door-to-door begging for the sweet stuff, the end of October unofficially marks the end of prime time for the 2010 harvest.

While there are still certainly some grapes a-hanging on the vine, for the majority of North American and European wineries, the fruits-of-their-labor have been picked.  No more nerve-wracking, weather-watching, hail-fearing afternoons.  Its time to hang up the shears and disappear into the bowels of the cellar.

So tonight, slip off your Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton costumes, grab a glass of vino and hoist it high in honor of the 2010 grape harvest.  Here’s a pictorial round-up (click on the pics to visit the respective host websites):
