Vino in the Valley

A unique, outdoor dining experience designed to stimulate all your senses. Every Thur & Sat night, as well as Sun afternoons May 15th-September 27th, 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. Acoustic music from local artists will add to the ambiance that also includes a small gift shop and farmer's market. The vineyard is five acres of vines planted to produce six grapes designed to stand and thrive in the western Wisconsin climate. Vino in the Valley wine will eventually be produced from the vineyard harvests. Vines planted include three red - Frontenac, Sabrevois, Marquette – and three white - Frontenac Gris, La Crescent, and Prairie Star.
