Our Owners

Our owners, Ric and Teresa Joranlien started a small vineyard on their property in 2012, and were making home-made wines in the basement. In December of 2013 the adjoining property and residence was purchased, and the renovation process was started. By March 2015, the winery was open for business with a small offering of wines. A wine production building was completed in late 2015, which allowed wine to be made more efficiently.

Vineyard and Grapes

Our estate vineyard currently grows Frontenac Gris (white), and two reds, Marquette and Petite Pearl. Our first vineyards were planted in 2013 so our vines are still fairly young, but we do get crops big enough to produce some Estate wines. During your visit with us, you are welcome to go out and look at our vineyards, and we will try to answer any questions you may have.

Our Facilities

Our tasting room is positioned on top of a hill on our 18 acre property, with 2 acres of vineyards onsite and 600+ acres of State Park land as a backdrop. We have a cozy log cabin feel inside, with two deck areas and plenty of grassy seating areas outside. Our facility is available for birthday or anniversary parties, small group meetings or special events, and tours are available by appointment.

Our Staff

Our owners Ric & Teresa Joranlien, Tasting Room Manager Nikky Thompson, Winemaker Ric Joranlien, Assistant Winemaker Ryan Alton and the rest of our tasting room staff will work very hard to be sure your experience at our winery is exceptional. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay with us more enjoyable.

This Winery is a gem in a really small town in Wisconsin. It should be put on Travel Wisconsin's website. It has amazing flavored wines I recommend the Plum Crazy and if you're lucky enough to get some their Rhubarb. I would recommend doing their tasting it's worth the 8 dollars I think it is. Might be 10. But you get a wide selection and you won't be disappointed.

Today was the first time we stopped there. We live in Freeport, Illinois. Just let me tell you it was a great experience. There was plenty of parking, the staff was excellent, we met half of the owners and she was very nice and informative. It's just a very nice place to visit. Ohh, and the wine was amazing also. We will definitely be back to shop, we recommend it highly.

Always a good time with our favorite Wine tender Nikki. I'm not a wine drinker but the new Watermelon wine was good! I could actually drink a glass of that. Good ambiance and a decent choice of appetizers. Must go check them out!
