WHAT IS A GRAPE STOMP?
It takes a team of two people, one stomper and one swabby. The stomper stands in a barrel full of grapes and crushes out the juice using their bare feet. The swabby stands below the barrel and keeps the juices flowing into the jug. Simple right? Come out and try your feet at the Italian Family Festa.
