Celebrate the release of our Ice Wine 2015! Taste this “Nectar of the Vines” and enjoy light food, harp music, and wagon rides through the vineyard.
Wine & Food
Wine | Complimentary tasting of Ice Wine 2015 and a selection of other featured wines.
Ice Wine Treat | A plated trio of cheesecake, pecans and frozen grapes dusted in sugar available for purchase with a glass of Ice Wine or with another Wollersheim wine.
Wine by the Glass | All available wines can be purchased to enjoy by the glass.
Wine Flights | Our Dry Flight and Semi-Dry & Sweet Flights will be offered for a small fee throughout the day in our winery store.
Relax with a glass of wine while listening to the soothing sounds of harp music in our Vineyard Room from 11:30 am–3:30 pm.
Horse-drawn Wagon Rides
Take a horse-drawn wagon visit through our vineyard with our vineyard manager, Bruce and see where the 2016 Ice Wine grapes are still hanging on the vines before they are hand-harvested in mid-winter. Rides run every 30 minutes between 11 am – 4:30 pm ($2/person, 12 & older. Proceeds go to Sauk Prairie Against Hunger Fundraiser.)
Our regular guided tours will be offered throughout the day. You can view our modern fermentation room and visit our underground aging cellars. The tour concludes with a wine tasting and lasts approximately 1 hour. $8/person.
Winemaker Philippe will be on hand to answer questions and sign bottles of Ice Wine. For wine purchases of 12 or more bottles from the Winery, our Pick-Up Building will be open for you to retrieve your packed wine in our parking lot. Our Distillery is open at 10am for a tasting of select featured spirits and cocktails. Plan to visit and see our Stills and taste our award-winning spirits. We hope you can stop by the celebration to explore the joy of Ice Wine and enjoy this “sweet gift from Wisconsin’s winter.”
