How to Pick a Wisconsin Dells Winery to Visit
Many different factors go into deciding which Wisconsin Dells winery may be your favorite. Perhaps, you want a winery that uses grapes specifically from the Midwest. Or, you care more about the atmosphere and design that the winery has. Let us break down each Wisconsin Dells winery before you go, so you make the right choices deciding which spots to visit.
Fawn Creek Winery
With free tastings every day and live music on Saturdays, why wouldn’t you visit Fawn Creek Winery? At this Wisconsin Dells winery, you’ll find a few classic selections like merlot and pinot grigio, but also fruit-flavored wines like “Razz-Prairie” and “Granny’s Gold.” You won’t find a better deal for wine tasting in Wisconsin-just make sure you try the seasonals, too.
Balanced Rock Winery
Although the exterior of this place looks like a barn, don’t be mistaken: Balanced Rock Winery‘s industrial decor matches the recent trend of repurposing old warehouses into stylish new digs. This Baraboo winery will teach you about Midwestern varietals, with bottles like “Chancellor” harvested from the shores of Lake Michigan, and “Brianna,” made in Wisconsin. Plus, it’s only $5 for four pours.
Broken Bottle Winery
This Wisconsin Dells winery is a sister to Baraboo Bluff Winery, where the wines are made at Baraboo Bluff but bottled on-site. With $4 tastings, try the “Redneck Rose” or the “Hillbilly Holiday” spiced wine. Two 28-foot tasting bars and extensive indoor and outdoor seating means you can bring as big of a crew as you like. Out of wineries near Wisconsin Dells, this one is the closest to Sunset Bay Resort at just a ten-minute drive.
Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen
If you’re not a wine person, but you’d still like the tasting room experience, check out Tumbled Rock Brewery & Kitchen. Beers on tap include the “Keep ‘Er Movin’,” a light pilsner you can only find in our lovely state, the “Velveteen Habit,” an American IPA, or the “Hopalicious”, with 11 different additions of hops. Or perhaps, you go visit for lunch or dinner one day after a day of wine tastings, as its extensive menu puts creative twists on Midwestern classics. Try the Wisconsin French dip, smoked trout crostini, or wood-fired pizzas like the Mac Daddy, complete with Nueske’s bacon.
