Ten Purple Toes -- Ten Top Reasons to Stomp Grapes


Olympic Cellars’ Last Grape Stomp & Harvest Party of the Decade

I can’t believe Saturday, September 13 is our 6 th Grape Stomping Harvest Party. I grew up watching I Love Lucy … of course they were re-runs! Who would have thought my life’s destiny included a red wig and a Lucy ‘get-up’ hosting a Grape Stomp at Olympic Cellars.

The I Love Lucy show aired for 6 seasons, 1951-1957. This year, our 6 th Stomp, will also be our Last . In 2009, the Grape Stomp & Harvest Party will evolve in conjunction with the winery’s 30th anniversary. So while saying good-bye to a seasonal favorite, those who have enjoyed the event over the past six years and those who may experience it for the first time this year can look forward to a surprise next fall.

If you always planned to join us AND… if you always wanted to get really close to the grapes, feel the squish between your toes and the excitement of stomping then mark your calendar for Saturday, September 13 from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.

And, if that’s not reason enough, how about a count down to the….
