Yelp's Local Roots kicks off Oct. 4. (Courtesy Yelp / October 3, 2013)

Tis harvest time in Connecticut.  Apples are bending down tree limbs, waiting to be plucked, pressed and canned.  Grapes weigh down the vines at vineyards across the state, ready for their transformation into wine.  Celebrate the pastoral joys of the season with Yelp at a series of events designed to target the best of autumn at local businesses.  The festivities kick off in Hartford County this Saturday, October 5th, with a trip to Lost Acres Vineyard in North Granby for a wine tasting.  Other highlights for the week include a free canning class at Billing’s Forge on October 8th, and a complimentary hard cider tasting at Hogan’s Cider Mill on October 9th.
