Our Wines

Since opening in July of 2004, as the first winery in the Chippewa Valley, wine offerings have grown from 6 wines to 13 wines and a hard cider.

We produce wines that are light, crisp and full of fruit flavor. All of our wines are fermented in small batches (300 gal). We use apples from our orchard, Wisconsin and American-grown grapes, whole fruit and fruit juices to produce our award-winning wines.  Everything from start to finish is done by hand - that is, fermented, bottled, corked and labeled by hand at our winery facility east of Chippewa Falls!

Bottling Fun at Autumn Harvest

 

Grampa Mac's Hard Apple Cider is a crisp, lightly carbonated fermented apple beverage. With an alcohol content of 6%, this beverage is lighter than an apple wine yet still has the full apple flavor cider enthusiasts crave.

You can purchase our wines from our tasting room and select retail outlets. Find a retailer near you.

If you are interested in selling our wines, please contact Johnson Brothers Beverages.
