Grape Stomp: A Napa Harvest Experience

Anyone who knows I Love Lucy remembers the episode where Lucy wanders off to a vineyard and is ordered by forceful Italian women to crush grapes with her feet in a wine vat. Well, the clever, fun-loving family behind Schweiger Vineyards has recreated the side-splitting scene with this year's harvest experience. Sure, Crushpad may offer their version of a city crush camp, but we say go where the grapes grow for a truly authentic escapade. Make the trek up to the mountaintop vineyard and winery in St. Helena for a day of sampling, sugar testing, handpicking, de-stemming and good, old-fashioned stomping.

Crushpad Goes to France

Crushpad, San Francisco's brilliant innercity home/professional winemaking facility in SOMA has big news. If you've grown tired or are not interested in making wine from some of California's top appellations, why not try one of France's?
