It's wine harvest season in Texas, which means there's plenty of opportunities to learn and be part of the winemaking process, live out your best Lucy and Ethel dreams or enjoy a few glasses in the heart of the Hill Country.

Blue Lotus Winery // Head to Seguin for a barefoot grape-stomping session that ends with a take-home wine-stained t-shirt and photo-ops. The $45 ticket includes a pulled pork sandwich, chips, dessert and two glasses of wine. Sat Aug. 17, 10am-noon, 5151 Farm to Market 20, Seguin, eventbrite.com.

Pedernales Cellars // Winemakers will lead onsite tours of the Pedernales Cellars and their production facilities, before attendees get to end the session with a stomp. The $25 tickets include the tour, t-shirt and stomping time. The events are limited to 20 people per session, so be sure to reserve your space ahead of time. Sun Aug. 18, 2-4pm, 2916 Upper Albert Road, Stonewall, pedernalescellars.com.



Messina Hof Hill Country Winery // Messina Hof is celebrating the wine harvest with a special harvest dinner, barrel tasting and a grape stomp that includes access to grape picking and stomping festivities, with a souvenir t-shirt. Fri Aug. 23, 6-10pm, 9996 US Highway 290 East, Fredericksburg, messinahof.com.

William Chris Vineyards // Technically, this is a grape "punch" rather than an actual stomp, but William Chris winemakers are here to show the process from vine to bottle. Attendees can expect to see a unique look at winemaking before getting to punch out their own wine. Sat Aug. 24, noon, 10352 U.S. Highway 290, Hye, williamchriswines.com.
