Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Temecula, California - Sep 14, 2016 - Fall is in the air and the wine country grapes are bursting with ripeness! The vineyards are anticipating the ripe bounty of harvest. Part of that experience is the annual grape stomp! An event that, if you have never experienced , you need to add it to your bucket list! Michele Waters, Wine tour expert in Temecula Valley states “the grape stomp is festive, fun and messy! “ Waters continues, “ There is nothing like the joy of climbing into the barrel and stomping grapes to your hearts content. Laughing, cheering and overall great times are had by all when you take part in a grape stomp!“
Selecting the proper clothing is crucial for a good time. Waters explains “wear shorts and loose fitting clothing. Slip on shoes are the best-you will be barefoot. Keep hands free so that, while stomping,balance can be maintained while crushing!”
A Crush that will not soon be forgotten!”
The grape stomp happens annually at harvest time, and oftentimes wineries make it a special event-that is usually very organized for guests enjoyment. “Of course, drinking wine is a big part of that” Waters adds “to make the most of the day or week end, visitors need to have reliable transportation, guests will be tasting some great wines and driving for this event should be avoided.”
Waters suggests hiring a professional who has the knowledge of the vineyards, and the surrounding area. Take Executive VIP Transportation, they provide safe, affordable rides for the grape stomp, as well as wine tasting tours. “Professional drivers who can navigate safely around wine country is paramount” Waters adds. “Tasting guests want to avoid getting behind the wheel and certainly do not want to be pulled over” An experience that can be not only unsafe, but costly too.
So what do they do with the juice after you stomp? “Generally, the stomp is set up for the fun and experience, no need to worry because it is not made into wine!” Waters notes. The juice returns to the soil. The event is set up for the experience, certainly it is not the way the wine in produced!
After the completion of everyones crush stomping enjoyment, the wineries will provide a clean up area, where visitors can wash up, and put shoes back on. “One memorable thing to do” Waters adds, “is to purchase some wine from the winery of the event, particularly one of the grape that have been stomped” “The next time that bottle of wine is uncorked, it will make for great conversation at the dinner table!-A Crush that will not soon be forgotten!” Source :
