Whether you are looking for an event “ice breaker”, a unique, fun teambuilding option (that your employees will actually enjoy!), or a creative twist to your dinner reception, The Great Grape Stomp is guaranteed to deliver a ton of fun and laughter mixed with some friendly competition!
"The Grape Stomp was absolutely one of the best team building activities we have ever done!" - Lori Morley, Overwaitea Food Group
"The Avalon team's great work and efforts made the Canadian Transport Lawyer's Association grape stomp experience a success and the client was very pleased with the outcome of the evening. Thank you for helping us deliver another successful event!" - Marlene Deisl, Synergy Events
Each team must crush thirty pounds of grapes which are poured into half-barrels for stomping. One 'Stomper' at a time (about 2 minutes per Stomper) steps into the barrel in bare feet and flattens the grapes. The 'Swabbie' stands below the barrel and catches the juice and uses a metal skewer provided to keep the screen clear to ensure juice flows freely. Team members will take turns being the 'Swabbie' and the 'Stompers' while the others cheer on their teammates. The team with the most juice squeezed, as measured by the event coordinator, wins!
This activity includes all coordination, set-up and tear-down of all equipment (two to five stomping stations, as needed and determined by the group size), grapes, disposable overalls, warm foot bath with towels, professional “Mama Rosa” MC, music and lighting. Prizes TBD.
We are also able to add in a few extra, fun team-building elements in terms of picking teams, naming teams and determining the order that the teams will stomp. This is a guaranteed good time memory and is the quintessential Okanagan, BC experience!
