Harvest Festival Weekend 2016October 18, 2016
This past weekend we celebrated Harvest Festival 2016. What a fun weekend we had! For the first time we hosted a “Wine Olympics” where guests were invited to participate in various wine-themed challenges. We had barrel rolls, wine trivia, a bung toss, and (our favorite) grape stomping! Never underestimate the fun of stepping into a barrel full of cold, squishy grapes! People squealed with delight as they smashed their way to fermented goodness ala Lucy and Ethel. Each guest got a crisp white t-shirt to step onto and forever immortalize their juicy foot prints. Saturday we spent the day down in the barrel room, tasting and playing while the first rain storm in ages kept things interesting. Sunday was much of the same, though we had the talented local musician Nataly Lola singing up on the grass for us. Thank goodness for pop up tents! The much-needed rain didn’t stop us from stomping away again, causing way too much laughter. Pat made delicious pork and chicken sliders that were enjoyed all afternoon and the day was just perfect and fun.
