Be sure to read the 2019 version of Grape Stomping!
It’s that time of year when the vineyards are busy and the grapes are ready to be harvested to start the process in making wonderful Texas wine. It’s also that time when we get to celebrate and have a fun time at a winery stomping on those poor little grapes! Here are some of the upcoming grape-stomping activities happening around the state at Texas wineries.
