  • Island Grove Wine Company
    When Island Grove Ag Products found that they had blueberries that weren't able to be used for fresh produce, winemaker Chase Marden stepped in and, to the delight of all, started turning the berries into "Kinda Dry", "Sorta Sweet" and a Blueberry Moscato wine. Now, he runs the Island Grove Wine Company at its 10,000-square-foot winery, pressing the fruit of his labor into a lineup of vinos made from blueberries, strawberries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, and peach. While visiting the winery, guests can participate in free tastings held throughout the week, tour the facility, and stock up on bottles filled with wine from tanks just steps from the fields from which they were harvested.

    Taps Bar & Grill calms rambunctious appetites with an expansive menu of freshly made American pub fare backed by potent potables including 24 beers on tap.

Preteen sidekicks can fuel growth spurts with inoculations of mac 'n' cheese ($3.95), while age barriers crumble decisively in the face of ice-cream-laced brownie sundaes ($4.99).
