Grape Stomp Festa Offers Barrels of Fun 

Don’t miss the 22nd annual Julian Grape Stomp Festa, a celebration of the local harvest and the area’s colorful wine industry. The event will be held September 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Menghini Winery, 1150 Julian Orchards Drive.

How often do you get the chance to kick off your shoes, roll up your pant legs and squish your way through tons of grapes? With two huge stomping barrels — one for adults and one for the kids — the Festa offers a truly unique experience to everyone. With great wine, food, shopping, music and entertainment, Grape Stomp Festa puts the focus on local wineries, food-makers and merchants, enhancing the experience with authentic Italian music, bocce ball contests and, if history repeats itself, attendees who come dressed as Lucille Ball to reenact an iconic episode of “I Love Lucy.”

Visit or call the Julian Chamber of Commerce, event sponsor, at 760-765-1857 for details and tickets. Julian Grape Stomp Festa is an exciting way to kick off the fall season — a real treat for all who attend.
