12pm – 2pm “Big Feet” Grape Stomping
Grab your video cameras and smart phones for this once-in-a-lifetime photo/video op. Kids and adults get the chance to go back in time to the days when wine grapes were stomped by foot. That’s right, you can roll up the pant legs, and jump right in. No shortage of laughs and smiles here.
Included with your stomp ticket is a “Crushed-It” Seven Birches T-shirt. There are no set stomp times, so you will be able to get dirty before, during, or after your scheduled tour time. T-shirt sizes will be gathered at the point of reservations online. We expect that you’ll be good and tired, from stomping, after 15-20 minutes of non-stop-stomping. Of course, bystanders and videographers are free to watch and laugh with the crowd. Not everyone NEEDS to stomp. But, those wishing to do the tour and go to the dinner, will need tickets.
What to expect: Expect to get dirty. The tubs of grapes are not very deep, but you will get splashed, so dress appropriately. You will want to wear loose-leg pants (or shorts) so you can roll up the legs. Or, by all means ruin your pants… up to you. We will have each participant sanitize their feet prior to getting into the tubs, and we’ll have nice hot water to wash your feet off when you are done. Plan for purple toes for a while.
Kids under the age of 10, STOMP FREE (no reservation required). But, that does not include the t-shirt or print. You’ll have your own camera or smart phone, for sure.
New in 2017: We learned a lot in 2016 and we have some great improvements for this year! Here are some of them:
- Larger Stomp Barrel – We heard your feedback about the stomp barrels being too small and only 1 person at a time. So, this year, you’ll be stomping together!
- Warmer Grapes – We had our grapes refrigerated last year and they were a bit cold. We’ll pull them out a couple days before, to warm them up for you this year.
- Lunch – There will be lunch served by Lavista during the stomp.
- T-Shirts – We learned that after you wash your t-shirts with your own grape footprints, they faded. So, this year, we’ll have footprints already on the shirts, like the one in the picture.
