GRAPE STOMP

THE GRAPE STOMP COMPETITION!

 

As excitement built in anticipation of the First Annual Barrio Logan Winery Grape Stomp in 2009, a total of 15 teams entered, each team consisting of four stompers seeking to stomp their way to victory.  They competed for a variety of prizes in categories such as most popular and most juice produced. A  team of four fantastic women friends beat out the competition to claim the crown there first place winnings of $300.00 went to a non-profit, MANA de San Diego.
 
In 2010, 20 four-person teams submitted entries and the result was the same - the defending champs successfully stomped their way to another victory and their $500.00 winnings went to the Sherman Heights Community Center.
The two-time defending champs “The Defenders” are back in 2011 to take on all teams ready to dethrone them.  Will you dare to field a team this year?  We encourage you to speak to your friends and family about fielding a team for this year's competition which promises to have more teams, food, entertainment and a lounge area in the winery.
Each year Barrio Logan Winery owner Juan Ramon Diaz looks forward to producing more wine in anticipation of the Grape Stomp and helping community organizations.
"I love making wine.  It's something I have always wanted to do." Diaz said.  "I get to do something I have a passion for and become a part of the effort to help the community.  Come and join us!


HOW THE GRAPE STOMP WORKS ?

 

Teams of three contestants will compete against other teams. Each team will have 10 minutes to stomp grapes to produce the most juice. Team contestants will climb into their vat and begin crushing, with only (1) contestant allowed in the vat at any given timed. The team will then alternate contestants during the allotted 10 minutes. The team contestants not in the vat will collect the juice for measurement. After all the teams have competed, the team that produces the most juice will be declared the winner. The overall winning team will be awarded a check for $300 to be distributed to the non-profit organization of their choice. Other teams will be eligible for prizes based on enthusiasm and crowd pleaser.
