a sunday drive to wollersheim winery


recently we took a nice little Sunday drive. We started by going though Devil's Lake State Park near Baraboo. John had camped there and passed his scuba diving test there some years ago.


Near there is the Wollersheim Winery. It was a picturesque stop. Complete with a little wine tasting. Prairie Fumé is a favorite of mine so it was fun to see the winery.

The winery complete with the newly reopened wine cave has an interesting history dating back to the 1840s. The introduction of Prairie Fumé in 1989 helped the Wollersheim brand gain respect and win awards. If you are in the area and looking for a nice Fall drive I would suggest heading in this direction. I think it was just a 45 minute drive from DT Madison.
