Harvest STOMP – Annual Grape Stomp: August 23rd
Eat, Drink, Stomp!
Join the Napa Valley community for one of the best, and squishiest, events of the year – the annual grape stomp. We encourage individuals, families, and teams to get down and dirty with the grape harvest. Event takes place at the Yount Mill Vineyards in Yountville. Stomp grapes with your bare feet in this lively, interactive competition where you can eat, drink, and stomp to your heart’s content.
Here are a few fun grape stomping facts you may not know:
- Grape stomping is also known as pigeage
- Stomping grapes is one part maceration, one part messy fun
- Mel Tillis wrote a song called “Stomp Them Grapes” to commemorate grape stomping
- Grape stomping was also featured in an I Love Lucy episode, “Lucy’s Italian Movie”
