The Bistro


The Bistro at Chenault Vineyards, has reinvented the art of dining. Guests can sit back, relax, and sip a glass of the vineyards’ signature wines or craft cocktails while our creative team bring them new, tantalizing dishes to whet their palates and ignite their inner foodie.

The chef and our staff bring southern style cooking to a new culinary level, with every plate as delicious to view as it is to savor. They offer a monthly rotating brunch menu to keep things fun and exciting on Saturdays and Sundays and has designed an eclectic and charming fall menu for her patrons.

Our mouthwatering array of local and southern flavors, including made-from-scratch appetizers, sandwiches, soups, salads, entrees and desserts offer guests a new flavor upon each visit. Our kid’s menu is fun, easy and flavorful. We haven’t missed a thing, and her years of experience in kitchens, restaurants and catering pays off at her bistro.

Her menus feature playful and unique items like gourmet omelets, rosemary and roasted grape flatbread, a bourbon bacon burger, berries and cream French toast, grilled romaine salad, Athenian chicken and Southern shrimp and grits.

We have relished the chance to play in the kitchen and insist on using local ingredients whenever possible, pulling produce and herbs from our on-site garden, as well as the vineyards’ grapes and wines to use in our dishes. The Bistro’s staff also uses items from local businesses like Purdy’s Coffee, Dreaming Creek Brewery, Weisenberger Mills, and Minerich Farms.
