Looking for the nostalgic grape stomping like “I Love Lucy” during your visit to Napa Valley this fall? You’ll want to visit Grgich Hills Estate. This historic winery in Rutherford is the only winery in Napa that hosts grape stomping every day of the week (10am to 4pm) August 24 to October 28, 2018 (or until the grapes run out).
Jump in a barrel of fresh grapes and get stomping! You can stomp grapes with a glass of Chardonnay, Rose, or Zinfandel in hand, and leave your purple footprints on an “I Stomped at Grgich Hills” t-shirt. Groups of 8 or larger require a reservation (call 707-963-2784).
Where do the grapes come from? We’ve always wondered, so we asked. The grapes for stomping are real Grgich Hills grapes that aren’t yet ready to make their debut in your bottle of Cabernet. Wine Club members get a special discount. Also, be sure to get your tickets to the wine club stomp party and lobster boil in October. See photos from last year ‘s party here.
