The branch made arrangements with a winery to do a grape stomping. I love the harvest season and all of the very traditional festivals that Italians celebrate it with. The best festival of all is the grape stomping. Every vineyard does some kind of old fashioned grape stomping. There are lot’s of different kinds of grapes, a lot of the ones used to make wine are not very tasty, but these ones were.
They did a little tour of the wine making process and passed around some cups for everyone to taste. The kids got the first cups and some of the Moms started freaking out, they did not hear the guy say that it was today’s squeeze…which means it was still sugar and not alcohol in the contents. That was when it came out that we were a bunch of mormons, it was quite funny. Luckily they had some grape seed oil lotions and cooking wine that we could all purchase to support the stomping.
