Stomp the Grapes. Drink the Wine.

22nd Annual Julian Grape Stomp Festa Is Not To Be Missed

Julian Grape Stomp Festa

Make sure you are planning to attend the 22nd Annual Grape Stomp Festa in Julian, California. Sponsored by the Julian Chamber of Commerce, the Festa is a celebration of the year’s harvest and the area’s rich local wine industry. The Festa will be held Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018 from 11am to 6pm at Menghini Winery, 1150 Julian Orchards Drive in the mountain town of Julian, just east of San Diego.

Julian’s Grape Stomp Festa offers its visitors the unique experience of kicking off their shoes, rolling up their pant legs and squishing their way through tons of beautiful grapes. With two huge stomping barrels, one for adults and one for the kids, the Festa is a not-to-be-missed opportunity. 

In addition to the thrill of the stomp, the Festa offers wine tastings from 10 local wineries, great food and shopping experiences, authentic Italian music provided by Roman Holiday, bocce ball, and, more than likely, a sighting of at least one person dressed as Lucy from the famous grape stomping episode of “I Love Lucy."

General admission tickets are $15 and VIP tickets sell for $65 and include comfortable shaded parking, snacks, a BBQ pig roast meal, preferred parking, two free drinks, free wine glass, fast pass to stomping, and a free raffle entry. For tickets or more information, visit
