Finally, harvest season has arrived and it’s time for some grape stomping!
Our annual grape stomping experience is one of the most popular and highly anticipated events we have at the Urban Winery Sydney so get those happy feet ready for this weekend.
To get the most out of your stomping experience, follow these three tips:
Wear the Proper Clothes!
With all the squishing and stomping, you’re bound to find yourself covered in grape juice before long. Grapes will stain fabric, so be prepared for a mess. You’ll also want to make sure your clothes don’t impede your stomping technique, so wear something comfortable.
Keep a Steady Stomping Rhythm!
Crushing a vat full of grapes is a fun leg day workout, but it is still no easy task. The best method is to keep a steady rhythm and focus on covering as much surface area as you can. Stomping with both feet is the traditional way but experiment with different techniques to find what works best for you.
Bring Your Sense of Humour!
It’s pretty hard to take yourself seriously when you’re knee deep in half-crushed grapes… So have fun with it! Just be sure to hold on if you need to keep your balance and refrain from getting into grape tossing feuds with your neighbour as those are generally frowned upon!
