Reusing Our Wine Bottles
Currently, Vermilion Valley Vineyards reuses 50 to 60% of its wine bottles – a decent rate, but not good enough for a “green” operation like ours. We won’t be able to increase this number without having our empty bottles returned to us. So, we have a proposition for all Vineyard wine lovers: for every 12 empty Vermilion Valley Vineyards bottles you return to us, you’ll be entitled to pick free blueberries (in a one-quart container) from our own bushes at the winery. Blueberry-picking season begins around July 1 and continues through mid August. Just ask the server behind our Wine Bar for the one-quart container.
THIS MONTH AT THE VINEYARD
Let the Music Play!
Every weekend at the Vineyard you can listen to great music -- blues, jazz or classic rock-n-roll -- while sipping your favorite glass of wine under the stars. See who's playing this month at the Vineyard.
Easter Dinner With a “Walk in the Woods”
Vermilion Valley Vineyards is hosting Easter Dinner on Sunday, April 20, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The menu will feature such tasty goodies as homemade Honey-baked Ham, Cheesy Potatoes, Spring Salad with House Dressing, a dinner roll and cheesecake for dessert. The complete meal is $12 per person. Note: Vineyard wine is not included in the price, but will be served at the “Happy Hour” price of $5 by the glass.
The Easter Dinner will be highlighted by David Benzing’s “Walk in the Woods” (see below), exploring wild flowers near the Vineyard. The dinner is separate from the walk, which is free.
Please call 440/965-5202 to make reservations for the dinner, or email us at email@example.com.
A Walk in the Woods With Biologist
As a child, did a parent or some other adult ever take you for a springtime walk in an Ohio woods to see our many kinds of early blooming wild flowers? If so, do you remember how to distinguish a blood root from a trillium, or a toothwort from wild ginger? If you wish to learn this and additional woodland lore, or if you simply want to refresh old memories, reserve 2 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 20, for just such an opportunity. Biologist David Benzing, co-founder of and partner in the Vineyard, will lead interested individuals to a wooded site almost directly across the road from the winery. Young children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Saturday, April 26, will be our rain date.
Please note that anyone is invited to the wildflower walk, which is free, but you still must make reservations for it by calling 440/965-5202. We will not conduct the walk if there are fewer than 12 people.
