It’s All About the Wine: White Mountains Crush Festival

Posted by Katelyn Michaud on Aug 27, 2018 1:31:44 PM

This blog post is part of "The Guide to Fall Activities in The White Mountains" blog series.

Dating back to the days of ancient Rome, grape stomping has been a harvest tradition in Europe. Even today, many small vineyards across the world host grape stomping events every year after the harvest. For centuries, small vineyards would gather all their family and friends and handpick the grapes off the vines. After the vines have been stripped bare of their fruit, a large celebration would be held to celebrate the end of the harvest. Tables would be set with platters upon platters of food, the wine would pour freely, and everyone would gather around the table at sunset and share stories of the day. In some vineyards, the dinner celebration would end in a grape fight.
