The Underground Wine Cave In Wisconsin You Have To Visit

Tucked into the hills of across from the Wisconsin River in Prairie du Sac, about 25 miles northwest of Madison, Wollersheim Winery is an award-winning, historic spot that produces some of the most interesting wines in all of Wisconsin. These hills were first planted with grapes back before Wisconsin was even a state. It was converted into a traditional farm but in 1972, Robert and JoAnn Wollersheim bought the land and began converting it back into a vineyard. The sloped hills and unique terroir mimic wine-growing regions of Europe and this small vineyard has grown to become the biggest in the state, producing more than 100,000 cases of more than 15 different wines as well as seven different spirits.
