A separate competition is held for children, making the 12th Annual Grape Stomp the perfect harvest event for families.

A chef-prepared harvest buffet featuring delicate dishes such as 12-hour braised pulled pork Italiano and rigatoni and rock shrimp scampi will be served to attendees, paired with a variety of Ponte’s top-rated wines. Classic acoustic rock duo The Lookouts will perform a special selection of songs to close out a perfect harvest night at the vineyard. Tickets to the Grape Stomp are $95 for adults, $76 for Wine Club members, $46 for children 12 and under and $36.80 forchildren of Wine Club members.
