Dungeness crab is in season and safe to eat this year and we are once again serving our traditional December seafood feast. Our version of the California/Italian classic has half a Dungeness crab, shrimp, mussels and clams in a garlicky, red wine tomato broth.


The Vineyard is sponsoring the Giving Tree for the 32nd year, once again organized by Malcolm Gatz to benefit Madera Christmas Baskets. All gifts will to the children of the working poor in Madera County.
We have a beautiful Christmas tree set up in the lobby with tags that have a boy’s or girl’s age and gift wish written on it. Choose the tag you’d like, buy the corresponding gift and return it here wrapped, and with the tag securely attached. The gifts need to be back here by Dec. 17th so that Malcolm’s volunteers have time to distribute to the children by Christmas. Thank you for your continued and generous support in this wonderful tradition.
