Vino in the Valley Featured on ‘Only in your State’ Website

For those of you new to the ‘Only in your State’ website, it’s a network of state pages that help its visitors discover new and exciting things to do in their own state or across the country. Vino in the Valley appearing on the Wisconsin page is nothing new, we’ve appeared in several “top 10” articles such as, These 10 Little Known Restaurants In Wisconsin Are Hard To Find But Worth The Search, Try These 10 Wisconsin Restaurants For A Magical Outdoor Dining Experience, and 10 Restaurants You Have To Visit In Wisconsin Before You Die. But we’ve never had a feature dedicated solely to us, and believe us when we say, this is a BIG deal!

They posted the article to their Facebook page and the post received almost 1000 ‘shares’!

Here are some of our favorite highlights of the article…

We’re so happy they chose to spotlight this photo!

And included a shout-out to our friends at Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery.

And referred to us as unpretentious. (why, thank you!)

Reminded us that we need to do the S’mores Bar more often!

And showed off how we like to wrap up our evenings around here. A great group of friends, a glass of wine, and a bonfire under the stars. Perfection.

ALERT: Schedule Changes for our Last Christmas Weekend

open-closedAs we shared earlier this week, the weather is looking frightful, and unfortunately that’s required us to make some changes to our schedule this weekend…

Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, the horses will not be here for sleigh rides.

We’ll be open today, Saturday, December 17. However, due to extreme winds and wind chill temperatures tomorrow, Sunday, December 18, we are going to be closed.

Of course this weather is almost tropical for Santa and Mrs. Claus, so they will both be here today as planned, from 1-4pm.

So that means today will be our last day of the season for us here at Vino in the Valley. Thank you for your continued loyalty and support through the many extreme weather conditions this year… from scorching heat, to severe weather and associated damage, to extreme cold, we’ve had a heck of a year!

We’re now looking forward to a long winter’s nap… See you all in May of 2017!

Start a Family Tradition: Join Us for our Christmas Weekends

img_3027If you happened to join us last year for our Christmas weekends, you know it’s purely magical; kind of like walking into a Norman Rockwell painting! If you’ve yet to experience a country Christmas “Vino-style”, you must check it out for yourself… And bring the whole family!

We’ve put the sides down on the pavilion for the festivities and our heaters keep things nice and warm. Enjoy sleigh or wagon rides around the vineyard, visit with Santa (Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm), or sit by the fire! We will be serving up our famous brick oven Pizzas and Italian Nachos. Oh, and how can we forget the wine? Yes, the wine will be flowing (as will the hot cocoa for the kids). And the kiddos will also have to check out our “Cookie Decoration Station”!

Adjacent to Vino in the Valley you’ll see our Rush River Tree Farm. Add to your holiday memories and enjoyment with a beautiful and lush fresh Christmas tree. ‘Choose & Cut’ your own tree or make a selection from our inventory of fresh cut trees. Varieties include Balsam, Fraser Fir, Canaan, and White Pine (long needle) with sizes varying from 5′ to 10′. Prices start at just $30 and include shake, bale, and drilling for stands. We also offer beautiful fresh wreaths and swags and spruce tips for holiday decorating at your home or business.

Visit our gift shop where you can pick up a few bottles (or a case) of your favorite Vino in the Valley wines for hostess gifts and your personal holiday enjoyment. And don’t forget to bring your gift list and get a few presents handled. The gift shop is fully stocked with merchandise and you can never go wrong with a Vino Gift Certificate.

Living Social Reminder

LS_Logo_Color_CMYKWe just wanted to remind those who have yet to use this year’s Living Social offer that the expiration date is quickly approaching. Our Living Social offer expires on Sunday, October 30 (although, after that date we will still honor your certificate for the amount paid).

As you might expect, with an offer this good, there were a few strings attached… Remember, as stated in the rules on your certificate, only one offer per table per visit (sorry folks, this will be strictly enforced).
