ELGIN – Deep within the souls of most human beings, there lies this urge to jump into a vat of freshly picked grapes and stomp. Most never get to satisfy this yearning, but occasionally a small window of opportunity arises. One is the Harvesting of the Vine Festival, scheduled this year for Sept. 28-29 by six wineries in southeastern Arizona.
For the price of admission, guests can eat the food, taste the wine, hear the music and stomp the grapes. But alas, the nectar of their stompings will never see the inside of a wine cask. Only the juice of those grapes stomped by professionals is used in the wine-making process.
