Vino in the Valley is a unique, outdoor dining experience designed to stimulate all your senses.
Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, as well as Sunday afternoons, May through September (with additional weekends for fall and Christmas, see below), enjoy a glass of wine and a pasta dinner among the vines in an outdoor setting nestled in the heart of the Rush River Valley. You’ll take in the sites of the emerging vineyard while dining on Italian nachos, gourmet pizzas, pasta, and sipping area made wine in addition to wines from all over the world. After dinner, take a stroll around the vineyard, along the river, and relax near one of the bonfires.
Closed for the 2021 season. See you in the Spring.

October Fall Weekends
While we hate to see the summer go, autumn is an amazing time of year at Vino in the Valley; the comfortable days and crisp evenings, not to mention the beautiful pallet Mother Nature uses to transform the Valley into a vibrant masterpiece! Some people say our great food and wine taste even better during the autumn season…there’s only one way to find out.
Christmas at Vino in the Valley
Canceled for the 2020 season due to COVID.
Beginning on Thanksgiving weekend, and continuing each weekend through Christmas, we celebrate “Christmas at Vino in the Valley”. Enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh/wagon ride, decorate (and eat) a cookie or two, cross a few people off your gift-giving list, and purchase your pre-cut Christmas tree, too. We’ll have the pavilion enclosed, the heaters roaring, and the bonfires blazing in anticipation of your visit.
Rush River Tree Farm
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 live 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′. We also offer beautiful fresh wreaths, swags, and spruce tips for holiday decorating at your home or business.
The vineyard is five acres of vines, which are planted adjacent to the beautiful Rush River. Six varieties of grapes were chosen, based on their ability to thrive in the western Wisconsin climate. Vines planted include three red –Frontenac, Sabrevois, Marquette – and three white – Frontenac Gris, La Crescent, and Prairie Star.
Since our vineyard is not yet producing, Vino in the Valley purchases regionally grown grapes from local growers through the Minnesota Winegrower’s Cooperative. We have contracted with Cannon River Winery to create three types of wines for the Vino in the Valley private label: white, blush, and red. View Wine Menu
