The much anticipated Scott Harvey Wines Grape Stomp 2012 is one for the history books! Here’s a photolog of the fun, the splash, and the results. Grape Stompers arrive with their kids and dogs in tow, anticipating the annual Amador County Scott Harvey Wine Club’s Grape Stomp Competition. Greeting them is Wine Club Manager, Monica Bennion, who helps them begin to quench their thirst with some great Scott Harvey Wine.

 

The Stompers nervously step into their vats while the Swabbies ready themselves for getting the juice out of the barrels and into their jugs.

Splatter--and a good sport!

Cleaning up after the event is usually accomplished with a hose down. On a hot day after a long five minutes, the contestants look forward to the soak.
