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!

Cabernet Sauvignon Harvest–August 22

is that YOU in the big hat, picking grapes?

is that YOU in the big hat, picking grapes?

Saturday, August 22nd at 7:00 am, this is the last bunch for the 2015 season, and we welcome you to join us! The vineyard is at 21724 Hill Road, Salado, TX, 76571.

Wear sunscreen, bug spray and a big hat. If you have a favorite pair of pruners then bring them, but we’ll have plenty for you. Dress for heat, but be prepared for anything. I recommend shoes and socks because sometimes there is pigweed that stings or a hidden ant mound and I prefer a little protection for my toesies, but you can wear sandals if you like. Sometimes folks like to wear light cotton gloves, that might help prevent wasp stings, but there are no thorns, so gloves not required.

Families are welcome, the work isn’t hard, just the heat can be a bit discouraging. We will pick until all grapes are harvested, usually around 11 or 12 noon.

If you’re coming, text your RSVP to 254.466.5813, and I will let you know if the plan changes. Otherwise, see you there!

Then join us in the afternoon at the winery to witness the last crush of the season.  The cab sauv grapes will be destemmed, crushed and then I’ll add some yeast and let them start the fermentation.  The air conditioning is set to “cold” and this is the best time of the year to come check it all out.
