Element 79 Vineyards

Dine in the Vines

After the last customer has left for the day and all of the clean up is complete, we finally get a chance to sit with a glass of wine on the patio. 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 a home cooked meal and it's a formula for a moment to reflect and count our blessings. 

We are excited Chef Jeneca Kretchman has joined us for these dinners.  Her extensive wine knowledge and creative cooking style is bound to provide meals that will want to you keep coming back.

These dinners are limited to 16 people. Les and Sharon will be joining you for an evening of delicious food, scrumptious wine and unforgettable moments. These meals are be served family style on our vineyard view patio, so close to the vines you can almost touch them. The magnificent sunset entertaining you with its beauty as you dine and socialize.
