This is already on my 2017 'to-do' list - the annual grape stomp at Flame Hill Vineyard. So, why not join me to experience the once-a-year event, Stomp, with live entertainment, wine tasting, cuisine by Flame Hill's award-winning chef and of course, foot stomping, grape-crushing festivities.
What is Stomp?
Foot stomping and grape-crushing - Image: Flamehill Vineyard FB page
Flame Hill Vineyard hosts the 'Stomp' festival every year to celebrate the culmination of a successful harvest and vintage. Flame Hill's signature event is totally unique and gives visitors the opportunity to experience a real harvest on a real working farm. Gather your friends and family together for a sensational day out, which will include an al-fresco-style or Muscat Cellar lunch overlooking the vineyards, plus a Flame Hill Vineyard memento wine glass.

Flame Hill Vineyard estate-grown wines, beer on tap and a selection of additional 'munchie' options will be available for purchase throughout the afternoon.
Appreciate a great line-up of live entertainment and local jazz that will be playing all afternoon, including Brisbane's Big Band/Jazz ensemble, Swing Central, who will be providing the smooth, swinging sounds for your pleasure at this foot stomping, grape-crushing, fun event.
