The celebration includes two options for their annual Grape Stomp (altered to accommodate safety and health protocols) – all happening during the month of September in the Vintner’s Garden of South Coast Winery Resort & Spa.

These sales are being held to honor some of the best wines California has to offer.

Personal Grape Stomps will take place in South Coast Winery Resort & Spa’s Vintner’s Garden. The Grape Stomp is a fun, two-person activity, which requires one team member to be in the barrel stomping ripe grapes as the other team member collects the stomped grape juice in a bottle. Slots are limited to accommodate safety guidelines and proper hand and feet sanitization will apply. Fridays and Saturday at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m.; Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
