September marks a shift from one season to the next whether you're headed back to college, sending kids back to school, gearing up at work or simply saying goodbye to long, lazy summer days. It's a pretty perfect month if you ask us. The weather is typically lovely, the produce is abundant and there's a fresh whiff of change in the air that gives us a little charge of excitement. No matter what September brings for you, there's a NASTY WOMAN WINE for that. Check out our September Guide to Sipping to find your perfect wine match.

You're headed back to campus.

September on college campuses might be one of our favorite places on earth. New classes, new faces and that youthful buzz of hope and change. You may not be flush with cash, but you're a Nasty Woman so you're flush with class. If you're of age, you need Progress Pink, Unapologetically Refreshing Oregon Rosé, affordable and guaranteed to start conversations about gender equality.


You spend at least an hour a day in drop off and pick up lines at your kids school.

Sending your kiddos back to school is a bag full of mixed emotions. There's the initial rush of joy at the peace and quiet, the cleaner house and the not having to constantly break up fights. On the flip side, there's carpools and homework and a schedule that is more like a juggling act. You need Pave the Way Chardonnay, our Unapologetically Engaging Oregon Chardonnay. It's the perfect wine for when you can finely steal a quiet moment to yourself at the end of the day.


You're gearing up for a monster 4th quarter at work.

You took a brief break over Labor Day, but it's time to lock in. 4th quarter is coming, you have your game face on and you are ready to go. You need our Inaugural Pave the Way Chardonnay, an Unapologetically Complex Willamette Valley Chardonnay. It's not your everyday Chardonnay and is the perfect wine to treat yourself to when you want to savor every single sip.



You are not ready to let go of summer and have a string of pool parties scheduled throughout September.

Some people relish autumn and crisp cool evenings. Not you. Summer is your jam and you are squeezing every last drop of it. You will barbecue until the first snowfall and if there is a pool party happening in a 50 mile radius, you're in. You need Boss Lady Bubbles, our Unapologetically Vibrant Washington Bubbly. It's perfect for any party, day or night, and it's refreshing enough to stand up to the last heat wave of the season. 



You were first in line to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Summer is great and all, but you can't wait for the first leaf to fall from a tree. You love butternut squash and apple picking and cozy sweaters. You need Represent Red, Our Unapologetically Determined Washington Malbec. This wine will give you all the fall feels and is perfect for curling up by the fire with a good book, even if it is still 75 degrees out.



Your calendar is a dizzying mix of work meetings, carpool and practice schedules, social engagements and family functions.

You're Super Woman. You juggle a lot and roll your eyes at the myth of having it all because, let's be honest, that shit is hard work and you're pretty sure 'having it all' would mean a little more downtime for you. You need Pantsuit Pinot Noir, our Unapologetically Tasty Oregon Pinot Noir. It's delicious and easy to drink and it's one less thing you have to worry about. You can count on Pantsuit Pinot Noir to deliver.



Your favorite thing about September is what is new at the farmers market. 

September at the farmers market is like Christmas morning for you. You still have summer's greatest hits in tomatoes, corn, eggplant and peppers, but you're also seeing pumpkins and butternuts popping up. You are dreaming up dishes and dinner parties to show off your market bounty. You need our Inaugural Pantsuit Pinot Noir, an Unapologetically Expressive Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. It's the perfect food pairing wine and its complexity will impress the most discerning palates.
