annual “Only Women Can Touch the Grapes” grape stomp—will once again help raise funds to provide mammograms to Sonoma County women without health insurance. As always, proceeds from this “Stomp Out Breast Cancer!” fundraiser go to the Breast Care Center at Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa and are earmarked to pay for free mammogram. Amphora’s annual grape stomp has been a tradition since Hutchinson founded the winery back in 1997. Each harvest, hundreds of women make the trek to the winery and make a donation in order to stomp grapes that Hutchinson sometimes crafts into a wine named “Due Sorelle” (Italian for ‘two sisters’, in honor of Hutchinson’s late sisters Janet and Judy). Over the years, more than $20,000 dollars has been raised at the stomps for the Sutter Breast Care Center, and the Bay Area Chapter of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Great cause!
If you go: There is a $25 donation per stomper. The event is from noon to 4 p.m. at the Amphora Winery, 4791 Dry Creek Road in Healdsburg. For more information call Amphora Winery at 707- 431-7767.
