Fall Creek Vineyards 25th Annual Grape Stomp & Harvest Festival
Saturdays, August 16 & 23, 2014
Fall Creek Vineyards is proud to announce the 25th Annual Grape Stomp and Harvest Festival, to take place on two Saturdays, August 16th and 23rd, 2014, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Fall Creek Vineyards in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
For over two decades, the FCV Grapestomp and Harvest Festival has attracted guests from throughout Central Texas and beyond. Hosted on two consecutive Saturdays, the Festival has activities for the entire family. Adults can enjoy wine tasting, a celebrity chef lunch and demo, paired with award-winning FCV wines, casual food on the patio, live music, bocce ball, ping pong, tours and more. For children, there will be plenty of fun activities!
An extraordinary two-course lunch and short-demos will be offered by Star Chefs, Justin Rupp, of Olive & June and Chef Paul Petersen of Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. Lunches will be paired with two glasses of award-winning Fall Creek Vineyards wines. There are two seatings each Saturday, 11:30am and 1:30pm for $23.00 per person, all inclusive!
Casual patio lunches will also be offered (see below).
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.
