Alert! Temporary Road Closure

Map - FinalUPDATE: 400th Ave is now reopened for general traffic. Busses and vehicles over 6 tons will need to take the detour (see below).

Well, we’ve just had an interesting turn of events! 400th Street, Vino in the Valley’s access from Highway 10, has been closed indefinitely for repairs. A variety of weather and environmental factors (erosion from undergrounds springs) contributed to concern about one of the bridges that spans this part of road. This closure will only affect our visitors coming on Highway 10 from destinations west.

But never fear; there’s more than one way to get to Vino in the Valley…

Feel free to download our handy map by following the link below. We’ve outlined the “official” detour, as well as a few of the more scenic routes (and a few short-cuts only the locals know!).  You’ll find that none of them take you very far out of your way; and you may even find a shorter and more beautiful road that will become your preferred trek!

We will be receiving regular updates in the coming days as to the status of the road closure and repair schedule. We’ll be sure to keep you posted each step of the way! Please be sure to “like” our page on Facebook so that you will see our road closure updates come across your news feed. If you’re not on Facebook, then the next best way is to be sure your email address is included in our email database (sign up here).

It’s times like this that we’re especially grateful for you. Most businesses would be more than a little bit concerned when the main road to their business is closed unexpectedly. I’ll admit; we were in shock and a wee bit panicked when we first heard the news. But, we know our customers won’t let this stand in the way of their Vino visit!

We look forward to seeing you all real soon!

How many sips does it take to make it around the vineyard?

Logo 30 SipsThat’s a good question and while we’ve never actually tried it, we’re guessing 30. Which leads us to a very special tasting event taking place at Vino in the Valley on Saturday June 1, from 4-6pm.

You see, we’ve added 9 new wines and 6 new craft-style beers to the menu at Vino in the Valley this season. That’s a lot, and with such a new and expanded list of selections, it seemed logical to have an event that would allow you to sample them (and the rest of our wines and beers, too!).
 
During the “Around Vino in the Valley in 30 Sips” event, our distributors will be on hand to offer samples (yep, you guessed it, 30 of them) of select wines and beers, make recommendations based on your tastes, and answer your questions, too.

Simply purchase your tasting card at the bar ($5 gets you 10 tastings) and then head out to visit our distributors, who will have tables set up throughout the grounds. Feel free to be leisurely; there’s no hurry… Meander around the vineyard, enjoy a guided vineyard tour by tractor-drawn wagon, visit the gift-shop and farmer’s market vendors, or engage in a round of ladder golf.

Bring your group of fun friends; because wine and beer tasting is serious business, you know (ha!). And plan to stay for dinner! This is one very special tasting, and you won’t want to miss it!
