“The Grape Stomp at Animalia” is just around the corner October 16, 2011, benefitting the charities of A Vintage Affair. This Franklin, Tennessee event just outside of Nashville is an event any guest will not forget.
If you can visualize the fun and excitement of the “I Love Lucy” stomping episode… you are already having fun. This event has thirty teams of five people stomping grapes through a series of heats, all competing for the grand finale, prizes and bragging rights of course.
A Vintage Affair is importing grapes from a favored vintner, Robledo Family Vineyards of Sonoma, California. In the preliminary heats, stompers will use 25 pounds of Robledo grapes for a total period of four minutes; but in the finale, the barrel is filled with 30 pounds of grapes to be stomped for five minutes with the addition of a “celebrity” teammate chosen at random from participants.
Teams registered so far include the cleverly named “Stomp Me, Crush Me, Make me Wine,” and “The Grape-ful Dead.” With fun team spirit and for the on lookers; creative events including premium tastings and gourmet foods throughout the day, this is an event to put on your calendar.
