Cru Winemaker Dinner

Winemaker’s Dinner June 6th

Join Cru Winemaker Ken Post on Thursday June 6th. We will taste 5 of Ken’s outstanding wines and have a great dinner created by Chef Jason and Ian. The whole meal sounds great to me, you can read it here but this pairing really interests me: 2010  Cru Tempranillo served with grilled venison and sweet onion marmalade over celeriac puree. That sounds great.  Make your reservations now at 559-674-0923. $50 a person. Starts with cocktail wine @ 6 dinner and Ken starts @ 6:30

Road Work Update

All off ramps and on ramps from Highway 99 to the restaurant are open. Work continues on the highway though, so drive carefully. Thank you for your diligence getting here; we appreciate your effort. We also appreciate the complexity of the construction project and understand the pace of construction.


Mark and Thomas

Congratulations to our long time employees Thomas Donatelli and Mark Martinez. Thomas graduated with a BA in Mass Communication and Journalism from CSUF and Mark graduated with an ASN degree in Registered Nursing from Fresno City College. We are having a reception for them here on the 15th of June. Come by and congratulate them.

Summer Vegetables

Fresh Veggies!

Some of the finest fruits and vegetables in the world are grown in Madera County, and we are proud to buy them from several local farmers. Because of the quality of this produce and the fact that we are so close to the farms, we can serve them to you as fresh as possible. The produce is often picked early in the morning and delivered to us personally, by the farmers that day, to make sure you get the best food at its most flavorful, packed with nutrients. We will be featuring some of these on our new lunch and dinner menus soon.

We will be closed July 3rd and 4th.

Enjoy your summer and thanks for your business.
