stomp! 2019

Our stomp! 2019 event was a huge success. We hosted 40 fabulous vintage apprentices onsite at our Cellar Door.

Guests were greeted at Cellar Door with Moscato & Sparkling Verdelho, then strolled to the stand of shady casuarinas where they formed teams & developed team names.

First task for the apprentices was to gather grapes, crush them to gather juice for sampling; ripeness, fruit flavour was tested. They were then put to work blending shiraz.

Points were awarded along the way, with bribes & strong competition.

After the hard work it was time to enjoy lunch, created by the team at The Deck, paired with a range of stomp! and Pssst ‘n’ Broke Wines

Time to get down & dirty. Stomping & t-shirt design came next. There was a multitude of stomping & squishing techniques.

Winning teams on the day were Grape Expectations & Coastal Connoisseurs with a tied first place.

Our guests went home with new friends, wine making skills, wine for the Cellar & big smiles.

Thanks for coming – see you all next year on Saturday 7 March.
