“Amazing wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

My wife & I had heard about the winery and decided to check it out on our trip to Chippewa Falls, it is just a few miles outside of town. Well worth the 5 or 10 minute trip it took us to get there, out in the country, beautiful setting. The staff was fantastic, the wines are excellent - go on a sunny day and sit with a glass of wine on their patio, it doesn't get any better!

“Great visit and tasting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

One of the people in our group found this winery in the local tour guide, so we googled it and visited for a tasting. It is at the end of a dead end road, some more signage would be a little helpful, but as long as you follow the gps, you'll find it. The gals that helped us with our tasting were wonderful, I learned some things about wine that I hadn't known before! Their wine is DELISH! We bought a case to bring back with us and enjoy. We'd definitely visit this winery again!

“Signage is Critical To Bring Customers to Your Establishment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We heard of the Winery through a couple of local people. We aren't familiar with the area so we googled it and tried to find it. The online directions took us to a dead end road without anything there. Literally nothing but a fenced in area that may have been something at one time but no evidence of anything recently. We called and got a recording that stated that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. So we asked a server at a restaurant and a patron where it was located so we could find it when they reopened. The server and the patron independently gave directions but honestly we couldn't find it! Even if you have no sense of direction, a GPS can get you there! The lack of signage simply is a negative and frustration for potential visitors. When something is "off the beaten path" as one reviewer stated, it is extremely critical to HAVE DIRECTIONAL SIGNS POSTED. We were annoyed by the situation so we didn't bother to even call them.

“What A Wonderful Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I am so glad we stopped here. From the minute we walked in the door the employees were fantastic. Spent so much time explaining the history of the winery and the kinds of grapes they grow and what kind of wines were made with the grapes. Tasting was free and left with a couple bottles of awesome wine.

“Great little winery on the outskirts of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Quick little wine stop on the outskirts of town. They offer free samples of wine that all were very good, and made on site. Will definitly make this a stop anytime I'm going through the area just to grab a bottle or 2.
