It was Awesome.  The 2013 Calaveras Grape Stomp was again blessed with perfect weather, huge crowds, outstanding award-winning Calaveras Wine, and the most exciting Grape Stomping action anywhere.  Congratulations to the Grapeful Dead from Los Gatos for their outstanding victory, and thank you to everyone who came.  Let’s do it again next year!  Click for Complete Results from the 2013 Calaveras Grape Stomp!    Produced by the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance, the Calaveras Grape Stomp, held in conjunction with the Gold Rush Street Faire, is a unique, fun-filled day for the whole family.  Proceeds from the Calaveras Grape Stomp support local community groups. At the Grape Stomp, teams of two, a Swabber (sometimes called a Mucker) and a Stomper compete to try and stomp the most juice out of measured amounts of wine grapes.  An experienced panel of experts precisely weighs the juice, and prizes are awarded to all the winners.  There are special prizes for the top finishers in the Championship Stomp. Teams are encouraged to appear in costume (like we could prevent it anyway) and prizes are awarded for costumes based on originality, design, and effort.  But there's more to the Grape Stomp than just the wanton destruction of two tons of perfectly good fruit.  There's also a terrific silent auction where you can score some key bargains on Calaveras Wines, ski packages at Bear Valley, and other great items. There's also a call auction offering amazing wine experiences at some of Calaveras' award-winning wineries, featuring fabulous gourmet dinners, vineyard tours, and a chance to rub shoulders with some of the leading winemakers in the Sierra Foothills.  Proceeds support local community groups. This year featured a special tribute to the hundreds of volunteers who take personal responsibility for making the event a success.  Without their commitment, there would be no Calaveras Grape Stomp.  Check out our Volunteer page! So make your plans now (for the 1st Saturday in October) to have some great food, award-winning wine, unique .... uh, entertainment, and a massive Street Faire, all in the picturesque and historic Gold Rush town of Murphys, CA.  For more information, drop us a line, or call (209) 754-0127.
