GRAPE STOMP at Festival of the Grape

Date: Sunday, October 3rd, 2021

Time: 12:00pm-5:00pm

Oliver Osoyoos Wine Country is delighted to bring back The Grape Stomp as part of Fall Festival Weekend in Canada’s Wine Capital

This beloved event welcomes teams of three, who are encouraged to dress in crazy and wacky costumes, as they compete to crush as much as many fresh local grapes as they can into juice(must). The top six teams, by must weight, will then compete in a final heat for “Winner Takes the Glory” bragging rights and prizes from wine country for the top three teams.

Below are some highlights from the 2017 Grape Stomp and the episode of the Rick Mercer Report where Rick himself jumps in the wine barrel for some crushing fun….
