The Harvest Stompede
The weekend’s festivities kick off at 9:00 am on Saturday morning at Ciccone Vineyard with the Harvest Stompede race. While race registration is not included with your wine tour ticket or in any way required, it’s considered one of the most unique races in the country – a great event for spectators. The one-of-a-kind course meanders through rolling vineyard rows that are heavy with ripe wine grapes that are soon to be picked. The race is designed for both serious and recreational runners or walkers, with options for a 5K walk, 5K run, or 7 mile run.
