This place is very pretty, and I was impressed with their sparkling wine made from estate grown WI grapes (Frontenac Gris). I think it's the only winery making sparkling in the state. Mind you, it's not CA quality by any stretch but definitely interesting and worth a try. Their estate reds are good as well, assuming you like Midwest hybrid... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed a great selection of wines. The building is surrounded by the vineyard, and there is a nice area to sit outside and enjoy a nice glass/bottle with a beautiful view!

I enjoy family wineries and this winery was no exception. Nice modern tasting room that appeared to be popular with the local young wine diva ladies. Good clean wines and attentive staff. Yeah, it ain't Napa. But it's nice.

Stopped here on my way from Minneapolis to Green Bay. What a wonderful place and not far off the interstate.The staff here was very friendly. Even let me photograph out in the vineyard. The wines were exceptional and they offer a very unique tasting opportunity. They call it "flights". You can taste 4 wines in your flight for free and... More

The wines here are very good. They offer 4 different "flights" for tasting. 2 dryer and 2 sweeter. All of the wines we tried were excellent ! Make it a point if in the area to make River Bend Vineyard and Winery a stop! You will not be disappointed.

We come here several times a year to enjoy old favorites and find new ones. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. Some weekends they have wood fire pizzas and music. Well done winery.

River Bend has concerts during the summer about once per month. They make a great wine and you can purchase it at the concert and they will give you a chilled bottle and a glass. It is something we look forward to doing a few times in the summer, if time permits.

We visited River Bend around 5pm on a Saturday in late November. The free tasting included 5 wines, then we enjoyed a glass ($5 each) of wine while checking out the shop. The store was decorated for Christmas and felt clean and cozy. The staff was very friendly. The best time to come is probably in the summer time because... More

I stopped there 3 years ago as I live close and sampled some wines which from my experience as an argentine are far from reaching the standard of wines I am used to but for those who have not been exposed to good quality wines it could be worth visiting . And the prices are awfully high.

We stopped by this winery with a couple of friends. The sampling is free (small samples) but you can buy it by the bottle or glass to enjoy out on their patio. The workers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The wine was very good. This is worth visiting.
