For years we’ve been telling you about the annual Romp, Stomp & Chomp Harvest Celebration at Wintergreen Winery. It’s a lighthearted weekend reminiscent of the I Love Lucy stomping grapes episode. The Labor Day weekend event coincides with grape harvests here in Virginia.

But the 2012 celebration had a much different twist this time around as a Richmond couple made their engagement official while stomping grapes!

Rachel shares a kiss with Sal after he presented her with the engagement ring!
The happily engaged couple!
The rock! Wow!

We shared a video Wintergreen Winery shot of the couple on our Facebook timeline. Click here.

No word on whether the couple plans to come back and share vow at Wintergreen Winery’s Verandah, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea since they are doing weddings there all of the time now!

You didn't have to be getting engaged to enjoy the annual festival, young and old get in on the fun each year.
And if you weren't into stomping grapes, there was plenty of food, music and of course WINE!

The Romp, Stomp, and Chomp celebration signals the unofficial end to summer. Though fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd.

Enjoy the few remaining days!
