Element 79 Vineyards

Dine in the Vines

There is something absolutely magical about the vineyard as the day comes to a close. The evening breeze makes the vines dance, as if they are joyful for the cooling, which helps produce the beautiful wines we enjoy. The sun then begins to drop below the horizon and the sky begins to glow with colors as though an artist has touched watercolors to their paper.

Combine this with an experience of perfectly paired food and wine and it's a formula for a magical evening with old and new friends.

We are excited about our special chef line up this year including hugely popular Chef Jeneca Kretchman. 

When you arrive, you are greeted and handed a glass of our sparkling wine to enjoy while you take a few moments to relax and get acquainted with the other guests. All the while enjoying the sunset and the sights, smells and sounds of the vineyards and gardens surrounding the tasting room. Once seated you will enjoy a four-course dinner, each course expertly paired with one of our wines.
Les and Sharon love hosting this small, intimate evening of delicious food, scrumptious wine, many laughs, and unforgettable moments. One of the highlights of the night is when Les sneaks into the cellar and grabs a special surprise bottle to share.
