For whatever reason, we haven’t conditioned ourselves to think of Wisconsin as a wine-producing state. A dairy state, yes, but not one that matches the big boys in wine production.
Of course, many of us know about the Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac, and possibly the seven “unique wineries” in Door County, where a favorite is cherry wine. And the Wetherby and Three Lakes cranberry wines have garnered some notice. But for most of us, that’s about it.
Recently, the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s Statistical Service published information on the state’s grape and wine industry, and the bottom line is that it’s in a growth mode.
