Barrels of Fun Await at Julian's Grape Stomp Festa

THERE ARE BUCKET LISTS... in life, those gotta-try-that-offbeat-thing-once rosters that might involve a hot air balloon, or a boat trip, or a boat trip followed by a hot air balloon ride. But if you're talking about a "barrel list," then chances are strong you're discussing those unusual activities that are associated with a traditional vessel known for holding grapes. Lots and lots of grapes, quite often, the sort of juicy little orbs that let their liquid loose when stomped by a foot. If you've seen grape stomping on television — perhaps in the classic "I Love Lucy" episode or on a travel show — but haven't been sure where you can go to try it out, and cross it off your own bucket, er, barrel list, just look to some of the regional wineries of California in September, where grape-stomping celebrations have proven to be popular annual events.
