On Saturday, September 13th, Madrigal Family Winery hosted its Annual Harvest Party and Grape Stomp to kick-off the harvest season. Club members, friends –old & new danced the day away to T-Luke and the Tight Suits Zydeco inspired music and feasted on traditional Cajun fare: spicy pulled pork sliders, chicken kebabs & grilled veggies. Despite the 100 degree heat, everyone stayed cool while enjoying Mark Ray’s barrel tastings of our 2013 Levine Vineyard Cab (Atlas Peak) and our 2013 Garnacha under the shade of Chris Madrigal’s 100 year old oak tree.
Our grape stomp had a record 50 participants with winner Sarah Merkel stomping out 9100 ML of juice, beating out the reigning winner from last year, her boyfriend Jerrod. A huge thank you to everyone from near and far for making our party a huge success!
