Duplin Winery to Host 42nd Annual Grape Stomp
This September, Duplin Winery is hosting its 42nd Annual Grape Stomp in Rose Hill, NC on Saturday, September 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The event will include live music, interactive games, vineyard tours, wine tastings, prizes, food, drink, and of course a grape stomping contest.
Duplin Winery’s long-standing tradition began in 1976 when Duplin’s first grape harvest was ready for crushing, which was then done manually. Over 100 people joined together in Rose Hill and were able to stomp close to 1,000 pounds of grapes to make the first Duplin wines.
Duplin Winery’s Annual Grape Stomp has come a long way since then. Today, festival-goers stomp around 6,000 pounds of grapes all in good fun. The event is a great tribute to its loyal customers and to the heart of Duplin Wine’s – Muscadine grapes.
Each of the 1,000 attendees will have a chance to stomp grapes with their bare feet and the most skilled will have an opportunity to participate in a stomp off to compete for a grand prize!
“It’s almost like waking up on Christmas morning. We can’t wait to get out and spend a day of fun with our extended Duplin Family,” said Jonathan Fussell, Co-owner of Duplin Winery. “This is something we look forward to and plan for all year and our hope is that our customers continue to love it as much as we do.”
Saturday, September 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Attendees will enjoy live music, interactive games, vineyard tours, wine tastings, prizes, food, drinks, and a grape stomping contest. Advance ticket price is $20 with limited availability and day of tickets are $30 with limited space available.
