Carlos Creek Winery in Alexandria is gearing up for its annual Grape Stomp Festival, to be held September 16-18.

Last year, more than 220 teams stomped grapes, with Larry Zilliox of Alexandria taking home grand championship honors for the second year in a row.


This year a new feature will be added to the grape stomp competition - several heats of "Trash the Dress" grape stomping will be held on the opening day of the festival.
