To kick off the autumn season, many of Temecula’s wineries uphold the yearly tradition of the grape stomp and harvest festival. Grape stomps, just as it sounds, consists of participants standing in large bushels and stomping until their feet turn purple. Just like the classic I Love Lucy episode, its good, not-so-clean fun.
As California Wine Month continues, wineries all over the Temecula Valley are holding their popular grape stomping events. To differentiate their Blessing of the Wine Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival from all the similar fetes in town, South Coast Winery Resort & Spa has added a little bit of religion to the mix.
