Get Your Feet Stomping in New Braunfels

Posted on: July 10th, 2014 by admin No Comments

 

Grab your partner, sibling, or friend and come on out to make some wine at the “Order of the Purple Foot” Grape Stomp 2014. Stay at Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort for a fun August getaway.

grapestompBring your buddy to Dry Comal Creek Vineyards. You just need two adults to participate — one person to be the stomper and the other to be the collector. The couple that produces the most juice within the allotted time wins! If your duo places as the overall winners, you’ll get a prize and your name on a permanent plaque displayed in the Tasting Room.

Stomping will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 2, 3, 9 and 10. Stomping will start promptly at 11:30 a.m., but arrive early to preregister and get your barrel number.
