Between 300 and 400 people visited Meinhardt Vineyards & Winery Saturday to enjoy its annual Grape Stomp Festival. Many bared their feet to pound grapes into juice the ancient way. Most sampled wine and cheese, and all were treated to live music from local classic-rock band PB&J.
Of course, a powered wine press crushes grapes for the real wine production. But the stomp is symbolic of a business that is as much about people and occasions as it is about grapes.
