Through the festival weekend, grape stomping prelims were held under the big tent every 15 minutes. The crowd had a great time cheering on the two-person teams – one squishing the grapes with their feet and the other collecting the juice. More than 300 teams stomp 10,000 pounds of grapes during the three-day festival. (Amy Chaffins | Echo Press)
