Wintergreen Winery will hold its annual “Romp, Stomp & Chomp” Harvest Celebration on Labor Day weekend Saturday, September 5th and Sunday, September 6th from 10am until 6pm each day. Enjoy “Romp, Stomp & Chomp” surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains with live music, grape stomping, wine tasting, Virginia foods sampling, picnics and fun for all. Plan to stay awhile and take in the scenery with a picnic outdoors and enjoy great music on Saturday and Sunday from 11am until 6pm. Saturday will open with the fresh folk-rock of Hobojac from 11am until 1:30 pm followed by Trent Wagler and the Steel Wheels playing their original Americana roots music which ranges from old time to country to folk infused with elements of gospel, blues, and rock and roll. Sunday will open with the retro-swing-jugband of Skeedaddle from 11am until 1:30pm and then guests will be treated to the high energy reggae-funk influenced pop rock of Six Chasing Seven. Purchase of a $10 admission per adult (children are free) on Saturday and Sunday includes the wine tasting, live music, a souvenir wine glass, grape stomping, door prize drawings, use of the winery grounds and riverside picnic areas plus wine and gift shop specials. Baked breads, prosciutto, salamis, imported and domestic cheeses, pates, olives, crackers, chips & salsas and other “wine-friendly” light picnic fare will be available for purchase to enjoy with your wine at the scenic picnic area on the banks of the Rockfish River. Event is held rain or shine. No reservations are necessary. Wintergreen Winery is family-friendly and also welcomes well behaved dogs on winery grounds. NOTE: NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED ON OUR WINERY GROUNDS EXCEPT WINTERGREEN WINERY WINES!
