We're excited to announce the release date (September 6th) for our strawberry and grape wine blend. This wine is named Wiskonsan - you can read the details on the name below. This wine was extremely popular last year and likely will be even more so this year.
To celebrate, we're having a party! In addition to having Wiskonsan available for tasting and purchase (as if that wasn't enough), we have the following going on at the winery as well:
- Discover Rush Lake - visit 5 local businesses on Saturday 9/6 for a chance to win a gift from each of the participating businesses - details here:http://vinesandrushes.com/events-list/2014/8/27/discover-rush-lake

- Broken Tree Pizza will be at the winery from Noon - 5:30pm with their mobile brick oven serving fresh brick oven pizza. Check out more information on Broken Tree at www.brokentreepizza.com.
Wiskonsan Wine Label:
Growing strawberries and grapes in Wiskonsan's climate requires a stubborn determination. Our unique strawberry and grape blend, Wiskonsan, is testament to the efforts of the Prellwitz family. The alternate spelling of our state name comes courtesy of our first Governor, James Doty. He insisted on the alternative spelling that showed up on the earliest maps when Wiskonsan became a state. This wine is an ode to our heritage as farmers, family and Wiskonsanites.
