Wollersheim Winery

Yesterday we took a day trip up to the Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, just under a 3 hour drive from Naperville. Robin read about the area — which sits on the Wisconsin River and is just east of the Mississippi River — in the Tribune last month, and we decided it would be a great day trip. We weren’t disappointed — the drive itself was easy, and the area surrounding the winery is beautiful. Wines were pretty good — and though not all of the grapes are grown locally, the wines are all produced locally and have won a number of awards.

  1. I've flown over that part of Wisconsin before via Cessna and it's mighty pretty -- quite unlike much of the rest of midwest because it defies the usual flatness and simple geometry of the farm fields and subdivisions so common in and around Chicago, and other major cities and towns. Lots of ravines and even short, shallow valleys. Closer to the Mississippi, near Boscobel, it seems to be the most dramatic.

    I might add that it looks like a nice winery!
