You can savor the taste of grapes on your tongue and feel them between your toes at the second annual Crush Fest at Yonah Mountain Vineyards.

The all-day festival set for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at the winery near Cleveland.

Visitors can take part in grape-stomping, tour the vineyard in horse-drawn wagons and visit Georgia's only wine cave. Barrel samples and wine tasting will be offered.

Area restaurants will sell foods paired with Yonah Mountain Vineyards' wines.

Live music will be provided by Curtis Jones and Insonnia, the Shoal Creek Bluegrass Band, Jeremiah and the Bullfrogs, and Chris Bahre and Friends.

Vineyard owner Bob Miller will serenade grape stompers on the accordion, and a surprise musical ensemble will perform as well.

More than 30 vendors and artists will sell local products and wine-related merchandise such as pottery, jewelry, toys and fiber arts.
