Steele Wines Harvest Festival Pie Eating Contest
Calendar of Events
Are You a Stomper or an Eater?
eeling a little stressed? (What parent isn’t?) Take it out on some grapes. Grape stomping, along with wine tasting, is one of the highlights at the Steele Wines Harvest Festival. If you’re more of a stress eater than stomper, try the Pie Eating Contest. Or just stroll around through arts and crafts exhibits and a farmers’ market, listen to live music, and, when you’re ready for lunch, (calmly) eat some barbecue. The festival happens on October 13 and 14, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. (grape stomp noon–4 p.m. both days), at Steele Wines in Kelseyville. Admission is free; wine, food, and art will be available for purchase. See steelewines. com/about/harvest-festival.asp for more information. On October 14, the Vineyard Run for Literacy will host a 10K run, and a 5K run/walk, at Steele Wines. More than just an opportunity to burn festival calories, it is also a chance to raise money to help local literacy efforts. Registration is $15–$35. Find out more at lclcoalition.wixsite.com/lclc. ¶
