Grape stomping in March

March is harvest time for the vineyards in the Southern Highlands and that means grapes need to crushed.

One of the best ways to crush grapes for red wine is by foot. Feet are gentle enough not to crush the grape seed which can put a bitter taste in the wine.

If you have ever though you would like to foot stomp grapes then this is your lucky chance.

All tours will be visit Eling Forest Winery where you will have a chance to stomp grapes while enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles. (except Sundays)
