Our yearly grape harvest is here with us and with it, comes an opportunity to stomp the grapes too. Exciting, right? For that reason, you should not miss AmRhein Wine Cellars vineyard grape stomp festival. This annual event is arguably one of the most thrilling festivals on our events calendar. You must be wondering how you can be part of the fun, right? If you are an ‘I love Lucy Fan’ you remember the I Love Lucy episode from 1956; where she was employed to stomp grapes in a vineyard. On that note, you cannot miss out on the festival’s highlight which happens to be ‘Stomp-For-Charity’ where local charities will stomp their heart out to collect the most juice for money donations.
