Deane Kern will be live in our pavilion playing his special style of blues, soul and rock from 2 – 5. The Grill will be serving BBQ, hot dogs, grilled chicken and veggie burgers throughout the afternoon.  Challenge your friends to Cornhole, Giant Jenga or ring toss in our beautiful shaded picnic area – loser has to buy the next bottle of wine!

Wine tastings, including our famous wine and chocolate truffle tastings, will be available from 11 – 7PM.

As always, we are family-friendly and dog-friendly.  And just plain friendly.

The Vine: Cruising the Mediterranean in Wine and Food
Aug 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Each flavor brings a different memory to mind – an evening watching the sun set across the sea from a cliffside restaurant in Italy, the sound of crickets in the afternoon in Provence as we poured yet another glass of rosé, the smell of the wood fire where the evening’s roast lamb was slowly being turned by an elderly man tending the spit in Greece…

From Portugal to Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Lebanon, we’ll take a trip around the area and celebrate the flavors of this very special region of the world.
