GRAPE STOMPING SUMMER FUN!

Summertime has always been a great time for some barefoot fun, and barefoot fun doesn't get any better than some good of fashion "grape stomping!" That's right, it's time to do the "crush”, the “foot trodding”, the "punch-down, or what we like to refer to as the "purple foot two step". What ever you call it, it's fun!

Grape stomping is truly a fun event for everyone in the family. You'll get to test your grape stomping skills against others for a chance to win t-shirts and other prizes. So fire up those happy feet ready and come join the fun!
