“Lovely Getaway Right Outside of Town”

Vista Ranch and Cellars
Ranked #6 of 18 things to do in Merced
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

In the summer Vista Ranch has dinners usually on Thursdays and Fridays. Sometimes there are car shows, sometimes music is provided. It's interesting to see the gardens which grow the great produce you'll be enjoying in your meals. I especially like the thin crust pizzas that they cook in their Italian wood fired pizza ovens. There's a tasting room/gift shop and bean bag games for the little ones. You can hold events, lunches, weddings out here very nicely. They'll break out the vintage linens and set the tables under shady trees. In the fall I noticed they had a huge pumpkin patch all decorated, fun for the little ones.

This is an event center located on Highway 140 (Yosemite Parkway) east of Merced, California. It is a winery, event center grounds, and local favorite for tasty cuisine. Besides private partires, there are many local events held at this venue. Each event has opportunity to taste the wines locally produces, and, sample the food - which varies depending upon the event. The personal size wood fired pizzas are excellent - closest to what we have experienced in Italy. We enjoy the Classic Car Show held monthly - nice grounds, outdoor activites, and beer/wine/soft drinks with a nice menu (pulled pork, pizza,tri-tip, etc).

This is probably the best place to open to the public in Merced in a long time. I have been to Oktoberbest, Mother's Day and wine tasting with friends here. With the exception of the service at their busier events, I always have a great time. The food is good, the atmosphere is fun and the wine is excellent. Highly recommend.

We went to The Vista Ranch and Cellars for the first time in September of 2012 and again in early October. Both times we went for dinner and were served delicious pizza. In October there was a German sausage special which included several types of sausage, sauerkraut, and bread. The gift shop is filled with a wonderful variety of gifts for all ages.
This is a perfect place to go for an evening of relaxation and good food.

We attended a wedding at this winery. The grounds are very nice and they have some very good food in the evenings. The wine is decent, though I don't think I'd drive all the way out to Merced just for the wine. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They also have a very nice banquet facility and a small house for rent adjacent to the tasting room. The wedding party used the house as a "bridal house" for the wedding and it worked out perfectly. If you're planning on doing a large function of some time near Merced (wedding, retirement ceremony, celebration, etc.) then Vista Ranch has a good setup.
