- 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. Space is limited. This is an event that fills up quickly so applying online will increase your chances of holding a space. Registration is not confirmed until fees and application are received by the Festival.
