Woohoo! It’s that time of year again when we get to stomp away at a winery and crush those lovely grapes! When you get out this year and enjoy yourself, here are some tips:
- Check the winery’s website and Facebook page to keep up to date with times and any other important things that may come up.
- Wear appropriate clothing because you will get messy, especially your legs and feet. Bring a towel, replacement shoes, etc. that you may need to clean up after you stomp.
- Tell all your friends what you are doing that day by using social media. Tag #TexasWineLover!
Enjoy some of the following grape stomps. When you go to a harvest party or grape stomp in Texas, tell them Texas Wine Lover sent you! Cheers!
