Margaret River Wine Stomp at Voyager Winery
23 May 2011
The Vintage Stomp celebration in Margaret River on Sunday May 15 was the culmination of one of the region’s most important events – the grape harvest. Hosted at the beautiful Voyager Estate Winery, the vineyard was transformed into a festive haven, beginning with a Grand Parade and the ‘Blessing of the Harvest’ led by Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine.
It was a fantastic family fun day and, as an official sponsor, Bankwest made its presence felt with our bright orange tent, along with a sea of orange Bankwest balloons and our happy Sun.
We had naming rights at the event of the Cellar Hand Barrel Race and the Waiters Race which involved teams from the local wine industry, all vying for the title.
The Vintage Stomp is all about celebrating West Australian food and wine, featuring local arts and crafts, live performances by acrobats and circus artists, ‘living’ sculptures, a grape stomping contest and plenty of activities for the kids.
