A Toast To Wisconsin Wines

With its grand stone manor house, formal gardens, and horse stables, Chateau St. Croix Winery looks as if its been magically transported from Tuscany and dropped in the heart of Wisconsin. In fact, this European-inspired oasis is a labor of love for winemakers undaunted by Wisconsin’s cold climate. In fact, since 2004, they’ve grown six varieties of hybrid, cold-hearty grapes that flourish in the state’s surprisingly forgiving soil, and turned out dozens of award-winning wines. Their Buckhunter Red took home both a gold medal at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and a bronze at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.

Wine tastings are offered during regular business hours and free tours are offered on Saturdays and Sundays at noon. Saturdays in summertime are an especially fun day to visit, thanks to a Music Series that runs straight until September.
