Toss off your shoes, roll up your pants and get ready for the Grape Stomp at the Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival! You’ll be stomping with the best so come show off your talents in the barrel. This is not just for the adults, the Stomp has youth heats as well so sign up the whole family! Sign up at the event to crush as many grapes as you can.
How It Works
For the Grape Stomp you need two people. The first person is the “stomper” and gets inside the barrel and stomps the grapes. The second person is known as the “swabber” and stands outside the barrel and catches the juice in the jug provided. The Swabber may also reach inside the barrel to ensure a free flow of juice through the screen and out the drain spout. This is a highly competitive (and very fun) event so bring your A-Game!
There are several different heats with 4 to 5 teams in each heat. Winners from each heat go on to a final for that day. The Grape Stomp heats begin at noon on Saturday and 1pm on Sunday. Sign up at the Festival. Advance registration not available/required.
Benefit Grape Stomp
Sign up for the Annual Benefit Grape Stomp Event where businesses and families challenge each other for the title of Champion. The grape stomp challenge is a light-hearted event that raises heartbeats and funding for our vibrant community. The entry fee collected (less 20% Stomp expenses) will be donated to the non-profits selected by the top 4 winning teams. The entry fee of $250.00 is tax deductible too!
1st through 4th place winners receive a commemorative plaque and the 1st place winner receives bragging rights and a beautiful, hand-crafted trophy by Steve Chiurco of Steel Geisha Designs Inc.
