The hugely popular annual Grape Stomp has been extended for the first time, to include three weekends of opportunity to do some grape stomping at the Winery. Tickets are on sale now (but selling fast!) so be sure to get your tickets soon and make plans to attend this unique event.

Get an authentic Texas winery-style experience at the winery’s opening day of Grape Stomp. Enjoy a catered lunch from a local staple and favorite, New Braunfels Smokehouse, with choices of Chopped Brisket Sandwich or Turkey Bacon Salad Sandwich. Food will be paired with Dry Comal Creek’s famous Comal Red. After the stompin’ is done, your toes are sure to be tapping to the funky sounds of music by Soul Sessions.

Things are sure to get spicy as Dry Comal Creek puts a little Cajun spin on Grape Stomp. With Cajun on da Geaux serving up your choice of Cajun Pasta Salad or Blackened Chicken Wrap, you can bet your etouffee that the winery will be pairing this deliciousness with their wildly popular French Colombard varietal. When your feet are good and purple from all the stomping, music provided by long-time Grape Stomp favorite, Jazz, Blues and Diamonds gets the party started.

The last weekend of Grape Stomp comes to a rockin’ end with some spicy food and wine pairings. Mi Frijoles Taco Cart will be serving their fresh and sought after beef, chicken, pork or mixed street tacos with a homemade salsa bar complemented by the winery’s award-winning Black Spanish. Music by Zack Walther Band seals the deal with a big finish for three weekends of Grape Stomp fun.

Check in for each Saturday event at the winery is at 10 a.m. In addition to the grape stomp, each participant will enjoy live music, a catered lunch, two glasses of wine, a logoed wine glass, a commemorative t-shirt, and their names on the label of the 2017 Foot Pressed Red Table Wine.

Tickets are $150 per event for a team of two. For those who just want to spectate and not participate in the actual stomp, guest combos are available for purchase for each day at $35 plus tax and include a catered lunch, two glasses of wine, live music, and stomping entertainment.
