Do you have something planned for October 22nd? If so, you might want to consider rescheduling it because you are not going to want to miss out on STOMP! What is STOMP you ask? It is our annual walk where we partner with the American Cancer Society to help promote awareness and raise money for research.
Currently we have tickets for this event on sale for $20 dollars and this price will last through September. On October 1st; however, the ticket price will increase to $25 dollars per ticket. You can purchase a ticket either online or at any of the wineries on the Rocky Top Wine Trail. If you forget to buy a ticket ahead of time don’t worry, come on down you can buy tickets the day of the event on site. Registration for the event begins at 9:00 am at Hillside Winery in Sevierville. After you have registered for the walk, you will receive a back pack full of goodies including a stomp wine glass, a bottle of water, a trail passport, and gifts from each of the wineries/distillery on the Rocky Top Wine Trail. The walk itself begins at 9:30am leaving from Hillside Winery. The first stop on the walk will be Apple Barn Winery located in Sevierville. Once you arrive at the Apple Barn Winery, there will be cider and delicious apple donuts from the barn as well as a station to bob for apples. While at the Apple Barn make sure to try their “pink” wine, a blend of red and white muscadine. You are also more than welcome to step inside the winery and sample the other wines available on their tasting list. From the Apple Barn Winery, the walk then continues on to Mountain Valley Winery located in Pigeon Forge. Once you have arrived at this stop, there will be snacks to enjoy while you stomp grapes just like Luci and Ethel. While at Mountain Valley Winery we encourage you to step inside and try their “pink” wine (Strawberry wine) along with the other wines available on their tasting list. Then, we finish the walk where it began at Hillside Winery in Sevierville. Once there, you can enjoy a delicious lunch provided by Corky’s while watching some local cloggers. In support of this event, Hillside has also created a special “pink” wine (Sparkling Cranberry) that you can enjoy along with their other unique wines. There will also be door prizes and a silent auction held at Hillside Winery for everyone to enjoy. This is a definite can’t miss day of fun for the whole family!
