Stomp and Sip Day or rather “Wine Swimming Day”

Beau Joubert VineyardsThis may not be a hike but let me tell you something; It was one of the best days I have had in a LONG Time. I had so much fun that I decided I just had to share a few of my pics  in case you ever see something like this advertised and wonder what it is all about. 🙂

Unfortunately we got stuck in traffic on the way and missed the grape harvesting but the wine swimming, wine tasting, food and staff at Beau Joubert were really amazing and we did not feel as if we missed out on anything.

Thank you to CupcakeMummy and to Beau Joubert Vineyards for inviting us to such a very memorable, fun day!

As you can see the decor was stunning and with a view all the way to the ocean…

Here come the crowd that did the grape harvest that I sadly missed.

From here we were shown how the grape separating machine works. The grapes go down the pipe and the stalks get thrown out the end.

From here we put on some older clothes, sterilized our feet and legs and got stomping, swimming and just having fun.

And of course I just had to be the one to do the belly flop into the wine baths… I felt like a 10 year old. Even though my eyes burned for about an hour afterwards and I had pieces of grape in my ears and hair till I got home to have a good shower.  🙂  Her is a video of me (yes me) doing a belly flop into a bath or grapes … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikPkEspcDuU

After we got hosed down with a hose pipe stuck to a wine tank and looking a bit more presentable again they popped the 1st Bottle of Champagne made at the vineyards and we got to taste it. How special is that!!!  Its going to be a great champers 🙂
