Enoch’s Red Grape Walk Stomp & Barrel
Annual Red Grape Stomp.
This year we are doing things a little different and renaming the event to:
Enoch's Red Grape Walk, Stomp & Barrel.
If you had the chance to join us during the Spring for our Wine Walk and/or have experienced our Winemakers Stem to Stem Winemaking Class, this event will follow the same format of a multiple station vineyard and winery tour while deconstructing the wine making process in a participatory, fun and exciting manner. Respecting social distancing we will have four stations set up at different locations on the property requiring a short walk. Each station will include a short lecture, tour, educational experience, or wine and grape juice tasting. The walk will include active participation in the wine making process. Under the guidance of Enoch's wine ambassadors you will pick your own mini-sample of grapes, then crush, press, adjust, and start fermentation. As a souvenir, we will bottle up your freshly crushed juice sample. Take it home and drink it as juice or wait a few days, let it finish fermentation and imbibe your very own wine.
The evening will also include an optional grape stomping contest and live music on the vineyard view deck.
Wine Walk Wine Making Experience - $30 per person
Registration will be held on the tasting room patio. Check in to pick up your souvenir wine glass, carrying bag, and other goodies.
Station #1 will be held outside on our new vineyard view deck. Our wine ambassador will greet you with a brief wine tasting and lecture on the grape varieties grown on the estate. Gather your supplies, head into the vineyard and pick a few clustures of Lenoir to begin the wine making experience.
Station #2 will be held in the Event Center Barrel Room. Once you've picked your grape clusters head into the Event Center where our wine ambassador and winemaker will give you a visual tour of the wine processing equipment. Once you see how Enoch makes wine, use your recently picked grapes to do your very own scaled down version of crushing, pressing, making juice adjustments, and starting the fermentation. Your sample will then be bottled and sent home with you to finish fermentation.
Station #3 will be held in the tank room where our wine ambassador will supply tank samplings while offering information on Enoch's wines at various stages of the fermentation process.
Grape Stomping Experience - $70 per couple.
This is optional and in addition to the Wine Walk Wine Making Experience. Everyone remembers the Lucille Ball grape stomping episode. Now's your chance to do the same. Grab a partner and enter the contest to produce the most juice from 20 pounds of Lenoir grapes. We supply the grapes. You supply the stomping. Bring a change of clothes as this can get messy. Stomping constest offered at 4pm, 6pm or 8pm time slots only. Reservations for this station must be done as a couple. Souvenir t-shirt included.
The event will be held from 4pm until 8pm.
Live music 6pm - 9pm.
