The weekend after Labor Day is Saint Croix Vineyards annual Grape Stomp. In the past, I was not aware this is free and open to the whole family. Not only do I think this could be fun to do as a family, it could be an opportunity to introduce my kids to Lucy. I have to admit though, the thought of my kids feet stomping grapes to be turned into wine kind of makes me ill. However, whether or not we actually stomp the grapes, the idea of a picnic and vineyard tour along with live music sounds like a really pleasant weekend afternoon.
Competitions for both kids and adults will be held three times a day and prizes will be awarded to those with the best grape-stomping style (as determined by audience applause)
- Tours: 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m.
