1st Annual Grape Stomp!

  • Tailing Loop Winery 1498 Mt Highway 35 Kalispell United States (map)

Yes, you read that right! The last Saturday in September you will have the chance to put your feet in a vat of real grapes. This traditional method of crushing grapes for fermentation is definitely a lot more fun than the machine-driven version!

There will be a Stomping vat for adults and a few smaller ones for kids. A sprinkler will be set up for quick clean up of the little ones, so feel free to bring along a bathing suit and change of clothes for your mini me's.

Adult Tickets are $15/person, and include your first glass of wine and all the time in the Stomp Tank you can take! Adolescents 12-20 are $10/person (discount for lack of wine), and children 12 and under are FREE.

A portion of each ticket sale will go directly to our chosen charity for this year: RezQ Dogs Animal Shelter. Founded in 2009, this organization has rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of injured and unwanted animals from all across the state of Montana. The founders' story is truly inspirational, and one quick look at their Facebook page will restore your faith in humanity. Due to flooding and space limitations at their current location, RezQ Dogs will be moving to a new property before winter hits. Let's help them get there and create the facility they need to continue their mission!

FOOD: We will be serving up a delicious combination of Pork Carnitas Tacos and Asian Chicken Tacos. Side dishes such as Mexican rice, beans, homemade guacamole, and several salsas will be available to fill out your plates. There will also be some simple "kid-friendly" options for our tiny stompers. Prices will range from $5-$10, and you can pay with cash or card. An ATM is available on site for those who need it!

MUSIC: The boys of the Classique Cats are back in the Tasting Room bringing the tunes from 6-8pm. Afterwards, all of our favorite Jam Night musicians will be joining them on the stage for a round of shared classics.
