My wife and I are big fans of the VV. We enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the bartenders and people that frequent this establishment. We are wine club members and I enjoy the beer they brew as well. Food is always great.

Have been her 6-7 times. Always delicious food, but especially love trying new beers and wine! My son is a member of the beer/wine club, so we get to enjoy even more varieties at his home. It's a fun experience, bring friends! Highly recommend!
