It's harvest time for California wineries. If you'd like to get in on the fun (and just a little of the hard work) you can check it out at the Sonoma County Grape Camp. The camp is scheduled for September 24 to 26 at the Vintners Inn. The weekend costs $1,500 per person, per couple ($200 single supplement) and includes two nights at the hotel, all meals and seminars. The weekend includes the "The Marriage of Food and Wine" seminar by chef and author John Ash, a dinner feast in the vineyards by Chef Mark Stark of Willi's Wine Bar, and a Paella party along the banks of the Russian River. The weekend also includes participating in the harvest, tasting freshly crushed grape juice at Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards and a trip to Ferrari-Carano to blend wine under the guidance of Red Wine Winemaker Aaron Piotter.
