Menu for Mother’s Day Weekend 2018

If you are still thinking about what to do for Mom this weekend, might I suggest an afternoon at Peaceful Bend?  Whether you want to sneak away early on Friday or Saturday, or wait till the formal day to celebrate, you’ll both enjoy our laid-back atmosphere and Chef August’s delicious fare!

Menu for 5.11.18-5.13.18

No reservations needed – the kitchen is open from 11am-5pm each day. Cheers!





Enjoy Spring With Us

This week we’ve welcomed 9 new additions to the winery:

10 chicks and a hen pecking at food in the grass

This hen went broody at the beginning of April, and she hatched out 9 chicks two days ago.  They are super cute, soft, quietly peeping and just about exactly what you want to see in the spring.  I tell you, between the winery re-opening, adopting two adorable kittens and now these chicks, we are overflowing with new life around here!

If you need an excuse to come out this weekend to love on some baby chickens, we also have live music from 2-5pm provided by Nathan Showalter.

August has a Cinco de Mayo menu cooked up for you too.  He’ll be offering a  beer cheese dip with chips, chili-braised chicken tacos, his fabulous cheese boards, and a caesar salad (with or without grilled chicken).  Endi is whipping up a chocolate pots de creme with real mexican chocolate for those of you with a sweet tooth.  Plus I’ll be making a Citrus & Wine Ponche (punch) to add a little extra special touch to the weekend.

Hmmmm…’s probably best not to tell our chicks what’s on the menu this weekend.  😉

Hope to see you soon.  Cheers!



Big BIg BIG NEWS!!!!

new winery building at sunset with information about reopening event

We are in the new building!!!!  We’ve been working this week on getting a tasting bar, cooler, and bathroom set up so we can move the tasting room out of the shed-teau and into the new building.  I’m so excited to be in there and can’t wait to share the view with you all!

So guess what that means?  Yep! We are hosting our GRAND RE-OPENING on April 28 & 29 this month!  We’ll have live music from 2-5pm both days, a special menu, a massage therapist will be available and we will be giving away lots of cool stuff, so be sure to add us to your calendar for the last weekend of the month.  All that, and no cover charge, nor reservations needed!

You might be wondering who is playing?  Well, we are thrilled to welcome several friends back to Peaceful Bend for entertainment for the weekend.  On Saturday afternoon we will be kicking back with Rachel Brandt & Brad Johnson whose jazz and folk tunes are always in perfect harmony.

Sunday brings out a local favorite band with an acoustic twist – Alderwood!  Hopefully we won’t have to deal with snow on our Grand Re-opening like the last time these guys played out here!

Even if it does snow or rain, we have lots of room in the tasting room, so don’t let the weather scare you away.

audience listening to a performer during open mic night at Peaceful Bend Vineyard

There’s a peek at Wednesday’s Open Mic night in the new building.  As you can see, it’s super cozy and perfect for relaxing with friends. You can see a short snippet of one of the performances on our instagram page here.

Now that we are in the new building, we are also going back to our regular hours.  The tasting room (and the kitchen once that is up and running) is open Thursday-Monday from 11am-6pm.  We are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but will be happy to make an appointment in advance if you need to come in one of those days.

Finally, I need to ask for your patience with our “construction dust”.  Our contractor is working hard to finalize the building, but has a few projects to finish up.  You all have been so patient thus far – we truly appreciate you hanging through to the end with us!

I’ll be making a quick video tomorrow of the new building and posting that here, on facebook, and on instagram so keep your eye out for that.  In the meantime, we are looking forward to  enjoying the new building with you soon!  Cheers!

two 6-week old kittens in Katie's lap

Oh wait – one more thing.  A new winery needs a new pet or two doesn’t it? Clyde and I have adopted two new kittens.  Kinky Kitty (she has a naturally docked tail with a hook at the end, so you know Clyde!) and ??? – we are still figuring out the male’s name.  They are almost 7 weeks old, and definitely keeping us entertained when we aren’t working!
