What it is:

  • COTM is a partnership between Vines & Rushes Winery and each organization to increase awareness of its purpose and raise funds.

  • Each COTM organization will receive 25% of Food Sales from their given Monday and any additional cash donations from that night.

  • Each organization will also have an opportunity to serve and interact with guests through front-end food service and share any marketing and communications material they may have.

Vines & Rushes serves Neapolitan style pizza from a wood-fired, brick oven.  With an oven temp of around 750 degrees, and a bake time of 90 seconds, the time from ordering to receiving your pizza is very short.  This allows for efficient food service in a spacious and family friendly environment.  


  • The first and third Monday of each month will have “Causes” and the remainder will be open for the normal pizza schedule

  • Pizza is available from 4pm - 8pm

  • The winery will be open on Mondays from Noon - 9pm.


Cause of the Mondays is our way of giving back to a region that has been a significant reason for our success as a winery. Each “Cause” has been selected by the staff at Vines & Rushes because of our appreciation for the unique impact each has on our community. We have worked to foster relationships with many businesses and organizations throughout the region. We support many local products in our winery, work with many local businesses and take pride in this opportunity to give back to our surrounding communities.
