From Winery to Event Venue
Holly is a Master Gardener and has meticulously landscaped and planted gardens all around the property. During the summer months you will see hummingbirds, butterflies, and bumble bees (her FAVORITE) flitting in and out of the blooms in Holly’s Wine Garden. And guests are always welcome to sip a glass of wine while touring our gardens.
What We Grow
People are often surprised to learn that grapes can be successfully grown in Wisconsin. We planted cold hearty varietals such as Marquette, Marechal Foch, Frontenac Gris, Prairie Star, and Niagara. They are thriving in the sandy loam soil here. Each fall, we harvest and sell our grapes to WI Wineries.
