Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival 2018

Grape Stomp 2018 is Sep 22

Saturday, September 22, 2018 4 pm – 8 pm

Tickets are here

Please join us for our third annual Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival!  We will have a grape stomp competition, Wear Your Whites contest (bridal gowns and white suites,etc), and an I Love Lucy Look-a-Like judging.  The afternoon will be filled with entertainment and a hog roast from Cen-Tex Chefs Collaborative!  We expect this event to sell out…so don’t wait to buy your tickets, or you may end up squeaky clean and disappointed.

Proceeds from the event go to support the growth of Salado Montessori, a new non-profit Primary for kiddos ages 3-6.  Salado Montessori aims to inspire a love of learning in each child and follow the child’s interests throughout their pre-school years.

The Cen-Tex Chefs Collaborative will be on site selling delicious hog roast and handcrafted sides and sauces.  Our wines will pair perfectly with the fine swine available.  We’ll be serving our locally made wines by the glass and bottle.

There is no admission fee to attend. Our pre-sale ticket packages ensure you will reserve your souvenir t-shirt.

Our grape stomp will be the ideal opportunity to make your Instagram followers super jealous. Teams of two will compete every 15 minutes in rounds of 4-5 teams. 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!

Pay attention, this year the packages are different.  We are now offering our Dionysus Package, which gains you the right to pose in the giant vat of crushed grapes and then make your own wine-footprint t-shirts.  If you want to to compete, the Smash Those Grapes Package is the one for you!

Tickets are refundable up to 7 days before the event. After that, you may transfer your ticket to a friend – make sure you email the ticket to your friend.  The show will go on 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 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!

SALADO Holiday PARADE

Thursday, November 30, 6 pm

Main Street, Salado, TX

Join us for the cutest small town parade ever!

Salado Re-INVIGORATED!

STOP by Salado, TX and check out all the new energy!

Have you been by Salado lately, if not, then you definitely need to come by and check out the NEW IMPROVED version we’re sporting!

First off, the construction is finished!  Yay!!  Now it is super easy to get to our winery.  On top of that, the new highway looks great.  You know how nice new construction always looks?  This project has really come together.  One of the biggest highlights is that there is a stagecoach mural and it is right near the winery.

Speaking of “stagecoach” the biggest news in town is that the Stagecoach Inn Restaurant is open!  The food is fabulous, the decor is beautiful and the service cannot be beat.  It is a wonderful blend of classics and modern, both on the menu and throughout the building.  I recommend you make a reservation, but even if you aren’t hungry, stop by the bar to have a drink and soak up the ambiance.  Click here for some pictures from our dinner.

Stagecoach Inn Restaurant is OPEN

And if you’re looking for something new and different, check out the cool new e-bikes at LoneStar eBikes.  Howling Wolff moved a few doors down into a gorgeous new location and LoneStar e-bikes moved into Howling Wolff’s old spot.

So lot’s of changes, new businesses and shiny re-builds.  To keep up with the fun things in Salado, we recommend you followKeep Salado Salty. They love to promote all of Salado’s goodness.  And don’t forget our favorites:  Salado Glassworks, Barrow Brewing & Classics on Main.  Have a great summer!
