A Vintage Affair is a non profit 501(c)3 organization that is dedicated to raising money for Williamson County charities benefiting women and children in need. In order to fulfill the goal of helping out neighbors in need, AVA hosts various events throughout the year which include: wine, spirit & food tastings, A Fashion Affair – their new show, and The Grape Stomp Festival. Since its inception in 2001, AVA has contributed over $1.1 million to local non profit organizations. Each year AVA chooses several deserving beneficiaries from the community to receive the proceeds for that fiscal year.

Those bold enough to brave the messiness are invited to experience traditional wine making as they stomp barefoot in competition against others in a tournament bracket-style competition. There will be five stomp heats, comprised of 5 teams each. The team to collect the most juice at the end will advance to the finals, where five teams will compete to be the Grape Stomp champion. Members of the winning team will receive a case of wine and a team trophy as reward for their stomping talent. There will also be a special award given to the best-dressed Grape Stomping Team, so team T-shirts or creative costumes are encouraged. The cost to sponsor a team of five is $1000 and up to 25 teams will be assembled. Those wishing to enjoy the event from the sidelines may purchase general admission tickets for $50.00. Wine, beer, food and music will be plentiful, along with Four Roses Bourbon and a Signature Cocktail. Come join us for all the fun!

The event will be held on Saturday, October 13 from 5 – 8 p.m. at The Factory at Franklin Pavilion, 230 Franklin Rd., Franklin. You must be 21 years or older to enter the event. With any questions please email director@avintageaffair.org or call 615-351-8165.
