Saturday, November 12, 5 pm – 9 pm
Please join us for our inaugural grape stomp and harvest festival! We will have a grape stomp competition, live music and pizza from Fire Street Pizza! We expect this event to sell out…so don’t wait to buy your tickets, or you may end up hungry and disappointed.
Personal pizzas will be made on location by Fire Street Pizza, a family-owned pizza trailer serving scratch-made, handcrafted, traditional wood-fired deliciousness.They’ll be making pizzas crafted specifically to pair with our wines. We’ll be serving our locally made wines by the glass and bottle.
Our grape stomp will be the perfect opportunity to make your Instagram followers super jealous. Teams of two will compete every 15 minutes. During your team’s turn, one person will stomp for two minutes and then the second person will stomp for two minutes. The team of two who produces the most juice wins bragging rights!
There is no admission fee to attend. In honor of our 11th anniversary, our signature wines will be on sale for $11.
Tickets are non-refundable. Even if it rains, snows, sleets or whatever the great state of Texas comes up with for weather. This event will be outdoors and everything but the grape stomp will be under a tent.
Kids are welcome and Winerycat insists that dogs must be on a leash.
NO outside alcohol may be brought in. That means you cannot bring beer, wine, distilled spirits or moonshine. Please no sneaking in alcohol…this is not your high school prom, thank you!
