Grape Stomp!

August is grape stomping month at the central Texas wineries. Let's go meetup and get some fun photos of grapes, vineyards, grape stomping and musicians.

Grape stomp is all day. There are small barrels that one person can get in and stomp grapes. Anyone can do it. Music starts at 1 PM. Bring a picnic lunch if you want. It will be warm probably hot so bring water and sun screen. No admission charge, you can buy a grape stomp tee shirt starting at $16. Of course wine and wine tastings are available for a fee.

Becker is a larger winery and can get crowded. Throw some folding chairs in your car if you want. It's about an hour and a half drive from central Austin between Johnson City and Fredricksburg off Highway 290.

    The Grape stomp was lots of fun. I really enjoyed this Meet up. Got to meet some new people. Relax some under the big tree and visited some but not as much as I would of like too. Guess I was too busy running around and trying to get some good shots. I even stomped some grapes.. it was fun. I really enjoyed it.

    I'm going to head out to this after all (wasn't sure if I'd feel like it). I'm only just leaving so I probably won't be there till 'noon. Hope to see everyone there.

      Carolina, It's just west of Stonewall TX. You will pass the LBJ park, drive through Stonewall and then you will see a sign for Becker Vineyard. It will be a left turn coming from Austin.

    Is there anyone going who wants to carpool with me in the Pflugerville area? My GPS says it's about 1.5 hrs away and I wouldn't mine some company.

    Hey everyone! I'm excited about tomorrow's meetup. Photography, wine tasting, grape stompin and music! I'll arrive early. I'm bring a few chairs and my Photographer Adventure Group sign so look for the sign, hopefully I'll find a spot under a shade tree! I plan to bring a picnic lunch and hang out there and take pictures until late afternoon. After Becker Vineyards I'll be head over to Torre di Pietra for a while.

    Please double check your travel route today if you are not familiar with the location of Becker Vineyard. The location on the meetup map on this page is accurate. Becker Vineyard is not right on 290 it's about a mile south of 290.

    I can drive some folks if you want to meet at the HEB on the corner of 620&2222

    If you love wineries please note there are at least 6 other wineries within a few miles of Becker Vineyards off Highway 290 that you may like to visit this day. There's a better than average chance I'll be stopping by Torre di Pietra on the way home!
