First Day of Fall…

The seasons on Earth officially change Wednesday, heralding their shifting nature with an astronomical feat: the autumnal equinox.

The month of September also marks the ‘Wine Moon’, ┬áthe lunar cycle when grapes are harvested from the arbors, pressed and put away to become wine.

The full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox is known as the ‘Harvest Moon’, since farmers would also harvest their crops during the night with the light of the full moon to aid them.

So..go enjoy a glass of wine and toast in the new season!
