A Vintage Affair hosts 4th Annual Grape Stomp Festival

The 4th annual Grape Stomp Festival will be held on Sat., Oct. 5 from 3-6 p.m., at O’More College of Design. The event is presented by A Vintage Affair, with Aflac as a premiere sponsor.
Whether your notion of grape stomping conjures up romantic images of Keanu Reeves and his love interest in the 1995 film A Walk in the Clouds, or of the iconic scene from the famous I Love Lucy “Grape Stomping” episode, those bold enough to brave the messiness are invited to experience traditional wine making as they stomp barefoot in competition against others in a tournament bracket-style competition. There will be up to five stomp heats, comprised of six teams each. 
The team to collect the most juice at the end of the four-minute stomp will advance to the finals, where five teams will compete to be the Grape Stomp champion. Members of the winning team will receive a half of a case of wine as reward for their stomping talent.   The stomp will be hosted by Buzz Brainard of The Highway SiriusXM Channel 59 and Radio Disney. Buzz is sure to add his own flare to the event.
T-shirts or creative costumes are strongly encouraged, and there will be awards for best costumes throughout the event. The cost to sponsor a team of five is $500 and up to 30 teams will be assembled. Those wishing to enjoy the event from the sidelines may purchase general admission tickets for $50. 
Wine and food will be plentiful. The Robledo Family Winery from Sonoma, CA will be in town to pour many varietals of their award winning wines.  Four Roses Bourbon from Lawrensburg, Ky. and Cougar Juice Vodka from Calistoga, Ca., will both be creating a signature cocktail and will offer bourbon and Vodka tastings. 
Visit AVA’s website at for more details and to purchase tickets. For more information on registering your grape stomping team please contact Ashley W. Roberts at 615.351-8165.
