Domaine du Ridge: stomping grapes like Lucy

Jacquie Czernin at Grape Stomp.jpgIt was one of the funniest "I Love Lucy" episodes ever, Lucy stomping grapes, her feet getting more and more purple....

The CBC's Jacquie Czernin got to try old-fashioned grape stomp in the Townships herself this week. She was crushing grapes with her bare feet as part of a seasonal wine-making event at the vineyard of former Member of Parliament Denis Paradis. It's called Domaine du Ridge, and it's 44 acres of vines near the village of St-Armand (near Frelighsburg).

Jacquie Czernin brings the story to Sonali Karnick from our Quebec City studio, where she hosts Breakaway on CBC Radio.
