Did a wine tasting of the drier wines and we were impressed with the selection. The lobby is filled with artsy things and it makes a nice impression

Have been to many small town wineries, and while I'd like to love them all, I usually don't. At least not enough to compete w/some of the bigger commercial wineries. This place is different. Amazing wines - on par with some of the best. And a great atmosphere, on top of it. Live music on Saturdays. Cheeses, sausages, crackers, bread to buy & have with your wine. And they welcome you to bring your own food (even steaks to cook on their outdoor grill!) if you'd like. Try their Cabernet - it's worth every penny.

My friend and I recently visited Studio Winery and we loved the wine. My favorite was the owners Locust Blossom and Coltrane. The owners were gracious. The wine delicious. They had two tasting options one with sweeter wines (my preference) and one with dry wines. Very nicely remodeled. Totally would recommend.

Who knew a winery was just what Lake Geneva needed? Definitely check it out when you are in the area. The owners serve up interesting, excellent wine tastings at very reasonable prices and then keep you entertained with wine lore and stories. They serve up Wisconsin beer, too. The facility is beautiful and the art and music atmosphere is fun and laid back. It looks like it might be a good place to shop for gifts, too, as they have display cases full of local crafts. The last time we were in, a guest started playing the beautiful grand piano. The owners don't serve food, but they don't mind if you bring in a pizza or cook up a picnic on their grills.

Live music on Saturdays! We'll be back.
