The Shiraz Republic – Festival of Winemaking | Stomping Parties

Community Event

6 Mar 2021 to 28 Mar 2021 Weekly Event

The Shiraz Republic in Heathcote invites you to experience all the fun of picking and crushing grapes into wine, without committing to the full cycle of winemaking. The winery will be throwing a series of Stomping Parties that pair the fun of making wine with great food and live music.

Start with a walk in the vineyard to pick grapes, along the way you’ll learn how they turn good grapes into great wine. Once enough grapes have been picked, it is back to the cellar door for a quick break before heading across to the winery where the stomping will begin.

The winemaking experience will round up at around 2:30pm for questions and then it will be head back to the cellar door where you can enjoy a refreshing (and hard-earned) wine or beer along with a pizza and great lie music.

Each stage of the Stomping Party is designed to be long enough for you to experience all of the fun of winemaking wine without the boring bits! It will be a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of good tunes, fun times and community spirit.

What’s included: A $75 day pass gets you access to our Stomping Party and a bottle of 2018 Shiraz (valued at $25) to take home and enjoy as you reflect on your day of winemaking.
