For live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights drive out Highway 140 in Merced towards Mariposa and stop at the Vista Ranch and Cellars. The outdoor menu is great and the music wonderful. Nothing is better on a hot summers night!

We enjoyed the tasting of 5 wines for $5 plus a panini lunch and really had a great time chatting with Arial, who is a true wine family descendant. I highly recommend!

The Vista Ranch does a pumpkin patch every year. Me and my family go out and get our pumpkins here. They have great prices and a huge selection. They also have games, hay ride and corn maze for the kids. I definitely recommend it.

The bar was newly done, and gorgeous. The lady who poured our wine was really nice and informative of the local wine business. I bought the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Chardonnay.
