Wine, Food, Music and Crafts Make For a Fun Outing
It’s the season for the stomping of the grapes! In true I Love Lucy fashion, you too can jump in a barrel of grapes and stomp till you drop.
A hot Florida afternoon found me at a local winery’s harvest wine festival. (Who knew you could grow grapes for wine in Florida?)
I tasted a tart and refreshing “wine-arita”, a frozen drink like a margarita but made with white wine while I cooled my heels in the wine shop.
The live music kept festival-goers entertained as they lounged on lawn furniture including an enormous bubble gum pink blow up “sofa”. Food was delicious and plentiful.
Join me as I take you on a tour of the craft booths where I made some interesting finds and met some nice folks. Learn along with me how some of the jewelry was hand-crafted as artisans share their processes with me.

Have you ever stomped grapes before? If so, where? What is your favorite kind of outdoor festival? Have you ever sold your crafts at a fair, art show or festival? I’d love to know. Please share your thoughts in the comments!
