The 27 acres of vineyards on our estate are part of the Lake Wisconsin Viticultural Area Appellation.
We grow four winter-hardy hybrid varieties: Two French-American red hybrids, Marechal Foch and Leon Millot; and two Wisconsin-native American white hybrids, St. Pepin and LaCrosse.
We make seven wines from the grapes grown in our vineyards:
- Young, flat fields give us young, light-bodied wines: Prairie Blush, Eagle White, Prairie Sunburst, and Ice Wine
- Medium-aged vines in medium-sloped fields create medium-bodied wines: Ruby Nouveau and Domaine du Sac
- The oldest, steepest field gives us our richest, fullest-bodied wine: Domaine Reserve
Pruning Grapevines in Wisconsin
Winemaker Philippe demonstrates how to prune grape vines ranging in maturity. From 1 year old vines to 20 year old vines, including the popular variety Concord. Click here to watch.
We work with vineyards in New York and Washington States to custom-grow additional varietals: Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Seyval Blanc and Muscat. In 2013, we started working with growers in California to produce grapes for our new wine, Carignan.
