If you’re looking for a great family dining experience, head out to Rusty Grape Vineyard in Battle Ground, WA. Voted Clark County’s Best Winery, it is also a fun place for food, music and dining outside on a beautiful day. The proprietors, Jeremy and Heather Sailer, have created more than a vineyard. It is was their intention to create a hub of activity – a destination spot in the countryside – and they have succeeded. Every time we’ve been there, we have enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, the great food, and of course their wines! But they also offer a wide range of food, non-alcohlic beverages, and entertainment.
Every night they offer a complete menu of appetizers and dinners, including salads, paninis, and their signature wood-fired pizzas. They even have a Mac and Cheese Bar that offers your choice of toppings on wood-fired mac and cheese. Throughout the year they host a series of events from Wine and Chocolate Weekend in February near Valentine’s day, and StompFest in September to celebrate the harvest. During the week, the Tasting Room opens daily at 4, Vintner’s Hour is Thursday and Sunday, and live music is featured Wednesday through Saturday.
The vineyard recently expanded its drink menu to include its own microbrew and hard cider. They also offer Patina’s Wine Club, which extends special discounts for every wine purchase, and hosts Pick-Up Parties to wine and dine their members. For a complete food menu and hours of operation and special events, check out their web site.
