Grape Stomp popular Harvest Event

Murphys: Boutique Wine Tasting at its Best

(MURPHYS, CA) – On Saturday, October 7, 2006 the local wine community, businesses, and residents get into the spirit of harvest and winemaking during the 13th Annual Calaveras Grape Stomp. Held in conjunction with the Goldrush Street Faire, this is a highly popular and fun-filled day of activities, shopping, wine-tasting, and some serious grape stomping.

More than a ton of California wine grapes will be brought in for teams of two, to smash to juice in heats of approximately two minutes each held every half hour. Teams also compete in an optional Costume Contest.  Costumed contenders need not stomp in their festive garb, but must check-in in costume.

At the same time, Main Street in Murphys will be blocked off to make room for more than 100 booths offering arts, crafts, and interesting handmade jewelry. The day’s events include entertainment, silent auction, barbecue, and wine tasting from all Calaveras wineries.
