One of the backcountry’s big events is this Saturday… the Julian Grape Stomp Festa, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Menghini Winery, 1150 Julian Orchards Drive.
It’s a back-to-the-old-country event, stomping grapes to be turned into wine. Looks like a great San Diego day trip, but you might want to leave the kids at home. My guess is that this isn’t the wine they bottle, although a few years back I did get a bottle of stomp wine; it had twigs in it.
In any event, it looks like a fun event, but make sure you have a designated driver in your Jaunt to Julian.
