The Weather is looking beautiful – come stomp with us!

Fall Creek Vineyards is thrilled to announce its legendary 27th Annual Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival on Saturdays, August 20th and 27th from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Fall Creek Vineyards at Tow, in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

For almost three decades, the FCV Grapestomp and Harvest Festival has attracted hundreds of guests throughout Central Texas and beyond. The Festival has fun and exciting activities for the entire family. Adults can enjoy wine tastings, a celebrity chef lunch and demo, casual food on the patio, bocce ball, ping pong, tours and much more. For children, there will be plenty of fun activities, including a Castle Bounce!  Grapestomp is free of charge- however lunches and tastings require reservation/purchase.

STOMP!  Of course the main attraction is the ‘stomp’ (free!) 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. Don’t worry about the Texas heat, as all activities are either inside the winery, under shade tents or on the covered patio with cool misters!
