Many have dreamed of stomping on grapes to make wine, but few have actually tried it.

Bluemont Vineyards this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29-30, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. will give visitors the opportunity to do just that, as it hosts its first Crush with Us event.

Guests will learn about the vineyard’s harvest practices, pick grapes and try their hand, or foot, at actually stomping them to fermentation. After getting down and dirty in the most fun part of the wine-making process, stompers can press their purple feet onto a white “I Stomped at Bluemont Vineyard” T-shirt to take home.

Entrance to the event is $25 per person. For more information, go to or call 540-554-8439.
