This is probably our best time at Meinhardt Vineyards because the fruit is here and now the rush is on to get it from the vineyard to the tanks. So many people are interested in how we get the juice from the grapes, but the truth is it's all done by machinery these days. However, there was a time when it had to be done by hiring hundreds of women to, literally, stomp the juice from the grapes with their bare feet. It is thought the reason women were preferred was largely due to the condition of their feet. Because most men during this period worked some type of labor-intensive job, their feet wouldn't be as clean nor as soft. We want to give everyone the chance to experience the tradition, so we will have plenty of fresh grapes for adults and kids alike to get in and stomp around. After your stomp, you will place your feet on your very own mat to take your purple foot impression as a memento of your visit.
