Calaveras Grape Stomp
Saturday, October 1, 9:30 am
Calaveras Winegrape Alliance,
The Calaveras Grape Stomp, held in conjunction with the
Gold Rush Street Faire, is a unique, fun-filled day for the whole
family. Stompers! Check your Starting Times!!
At the Grape Stomp, teams of two - a Swabber (sometimes called a Mucker)
and a Stomper compete to extract the most juice out of measured amounts
of wine grapes. The juice is precisely measured and prizes are awarded to
all the winners, with special prizes for the top finishers in the Championship
Stomp. And, new this year, every team gets their very own Stomp Bag of
Teams are encouraged to appear in costume, or not, and prizes are
awarded for costumes based on originality, design, and effort.
But there’s a lot more to the Grape Stomp than the wanton destruction of
two tons of perfectly good grapes. The Silent Auction this year is slimmed
down and buffed up, but wait, there’s more -- you could win a 10-day trip to
Australia (or New Zealand, you choose) in the new Great Grape Stomp
Proceeds from the Grape Stomp support local community groups.
So make plans now to come have some great food, enjoy award-winning
Calaveras wine, the huuuge Street Faire, and of course take in the best
Grape Stomp in California.
