Join us for a visit behind the scenes.
Winery & Distillery Guided Mini Tours
Tour behind the scenes with a guide to explore the winery’s modern-day fermentation room and historic underground aging cellars. Included with the tour at the winery is a complimentary glass of Prairie Fumé. At the distillery, see our stills, barrel aging room and our bottling line in action. This complimentary guided mini tour runs every 15 minutes and lasts around 30 minutes. Tours take place and start at both the winery and distillery from 10am–4pm. Plan to take each of them during our Open House.
Wine Flights & Spirits Flight
Wine flights are available for purchase in our winery store. A special estate-grown flight featuring our just released Domaine Reserve 2017, our Ice Wine and four other estate-grown wines will be available for purchase. We are also offering a sweeter wine flight. At the distillery, we offer a 3-spirit flight of our Wisconsin-grown spirits.
Winemaker & Distiller Talks
Winemaker Philippe will reflect on the legacy of Prairie Fumé and how it all began 30 years ago, along with looking ahead on future wine projects. Hear from Distiller Tom to learn about our spirits that are aging in barrels and how all are made with local grains, grapes and fruits.
Observe pruning techniques for home grapevines as our vineyard crew shares what we’ve learned about growing grapes in Wisconsin. The demonstration will take place outside in our vineyard among the vines to show actual pruning. Dress for the weather.
