Giving Tree

As we have every year for the past 30 The Vineyard’s Christmas Tree will be a giving tree. On the tree Malcolm Gates of Madera Christmas Baskets will hang tags with a child’s wish for a gift. Some are specific; some are just a request for a gift with the child’s age. You take a tag and bring it back with the gift. We ask that you securely attach the tag to the gift. Please have the gifts here by the evening of Friday December 18th. Malcom tells me that last year you gave over 300 gifts. Thank you.

Celebrate 32 years with $32 dinner

Our 32nd anniversary is December 13th. We are closed for a private party that day. Come in on the 14th or 15th and have our $32/32 Celebration Dinner!! You will get your choice of a Green Salad or our Fried Artichoke Appetizer and then a choice of Hector’s special Caramelized Salmon or a Filet Mignon and Tiramisu for dessert. We also give you a glass of an adult celebration beverage (we can’t say we are giving away sparkling wine) with your dinner. We will offer the 32nd anniversary deal on Monday the 14th and Tuesday the 15th for dinner after 5 pm.


We still some availability for your Christmas Party. Call Michele to book your party for lunch or dinner at (559) 674 0923. And you can make reservations for New Year’s Eve by calling or going online to
