Countdown Begins to 9th Annual Harvest Stomp!


Supporting farmworkers and preserving & promoting Napa Valley vineyards

Harvest StompNAPA, CA – August 16, 2016 – The countdown to the most highly anticipated harvest party of the year has begun! The 9th Annual Harvest STOMP will be held August 27 at the historic Regusci Ranch in the heart of the Stags Leap District, bringing together more than 600 grapegrowers, wine consumers, and locals to celebrate the 2016 Napa Valley winegrape harvest.

All proceeds raised at STOMP support the Napa Valley Grapegrowers (NVG) and the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation’s   work to preserve Napa Valley’s vineyards and enrich the lives of farmworkers and their families by: providing valuable educational programs and services that elevate the quality and reputation of the Napa Valley vineyards; and giving farmworkers the tools they need to become successful leaders, vineyard workers, and a bigger part of the Napa Valley community.

STOMP is Napa Valley’s authentic harvest party, where guests arrive decked out in ranch attire to enjoy an unforgettable evening under the stars. This year will be no exception. Chairs of the event, Jim and Laura Regusci, are honoring the rich agricultural history and diversity of the Regusci Ranch by incorporating abundant fresh produce and flowers from their gardens for a special “Farm to Ranch” dining experience. Guests will be seated at long tables amidst the vines to enjoy family-style cuisine prepared by Smoke Catering and later have a chance to kick up their heels on the dance floor to live music by Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers.

“Celebrating harvest is a time-honored tradition that grapegrowers in Napa Valley have cherished since the first grapevines were planted in the 1800s,” said Jim and Laura Regusci. “STOMP brings us all together with world-class wines, food and an authentic Napa Valley setting on the eve of harvest to support an organization that preserves this special place.”

One highlight of the evening is the “Fund-a-Need” lot, which raises money for the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation.  The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation is the only one of its kind and through its groundbreaking work, the NVG has raised over $3 million to offer education and professional development opportunities to more than 10,200 vineyard workers and their families.
