For centuries, grapes were handpicked and placed into a large vat where people climbed in and crushed the grapes with their bare feet, according to a media release from the winery. This method of extracting juice from the grape, called grape stomping, is the original form of winemaking and can be traced back to Rome in 200 B.C.
Although this method is not used present day, the Georgia Winery offers this old-fashioned experience for the community. The first Grape Stomp was held in 1983 at the Georgia Winery vineyard and has been a growing and widely anticipated event over the past 29 years, according to the release.
Today, Georgia Winery offers fun activities for both children and adults.
The event features grape stomping, face painting, live entertainment by the Buckner Brothers, local barbecue by Lockhart Fire & Smoke, local arts and craft vendors, hay rides, kids activities and wine tasting.
Bring your lawn chairs and spend the day. Tickets can be purchased at the door: $10 for adults and free admission for children ages 12-under.
