The 50th Annual Wiederkehr Village Weinfest is taking place Saturday (Oct. 12th) and our 5NEWS This Morning crew helped preview the big event.

Joe and Heather went head-to-head in a grape stomping competition Wednesday morning, while Al Wiederkehr gave us a rundown of what to expect at this year's annual event.

The festivities begin early Saturday with tours of the Historical Wine Cellar at 8:30 a.m. You can also ride a horse drawn carriage through the vineyards to an observation tower with a panoramic view of the River Valley.

Some of the events include wine barrel rolling, log tossing and grape stomping, but that only scratches the surface!
