3) – Casual patio lunches will also be offered.
Of course the main attraction is the ‘stomp’ where guests can kick off their shoes and experience the thrill of “bare” feet grape stomping, a la “I Love Lucy”-style. The classic episode will be playing so guests can ‘stomp along’ in the wine barrels.
Guests won’t need to worry about the Texas heat, as all activities are either inside the winery, under shade tents or on the covered patio with cool misters.
