Sippin’ in the Valley

We’ve added 5 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. Join us for a special tasting event at Vino in the Valley on Saturday, June 10, from 3-5pm.

During the “Sippin’ in the Valley” event, our staff will be on hand to offer samples of our newest wines and beers, make recommendations based on your tastes, and answer your questions, too.

Simply purchase your tasting card at the bar (2 cards for $5 – 5 tastings per card) and then head out to visit our tasting tables. Feel free to be leisurely; there’s no hurry… Meander around the vineyard, enjoy a tour by horse-drawn wagon, visit the gift shop and farmer’s market vendors, or engage in a round of ladder golf. Be sure to turn your card in when you’re done for a chance to win four $50 gift certificates!

Bring your group of fun friends; because wine and beer tasting is serious business (wink, wink). After the tasting, we hope you’ll stay behind and enjoy the balmy summer evening, have dinner under the pavilion and tap your toe to live entertainment by Stacy Jane and the Fermenters (how fitting!).

Vino in the Valley hosts 8th Annual “Taste of Tuscany” Event

Once again we’re thrilled to be hosting the Ellsworth Community School District Foundation’s annual fundraising event, “Taste of Tuscany”. The event, which will be held at Vino in the Valley on Friday, June 9, 2017, supports the Foundation in their mission to enhance educational opportunities within our community using private revenues. In a time of ever-tightening budgets, supporting this great cause has become more important than ever.

Social Hour begins at 4:30pm with the event officially kicking off at 5:00pm. Attendees will enjoy the music of Colleen Raye, a wine tasting, silent auction, and of course, great wine and a delicious dinner buffet. Tickets are $35 and available at Vino in the Valley, Ellsworth School District Office, Nilssen’s Foods, and from Foundation board members. Download an official event flyer here.
