Wollersheim Winery & Distillery
Prairie Du Sac
Wollersheim Winery & Distillery sit on a scenic hillside overlooking the Wisconsin River, just across from Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. Century-old winery and hillside vineyards featuring distinctive regional wines. Named 2012 Winery of the Year.
The natural beauty surrounding the Wollersheim Winery has been the backdrop for a remarkable historical heritage, one told in rich detail during the winery’s guided tour. The tour points out interesting aspects of the property, which has earned a listing in the National Register of Historical Places. Following a video that touches on the last 150 years of the winery’s history, visitors walk outside past our wine garden and vineyards. Then, returning indoors to the viewing windows of the modern fermentation room, another brief video is shown which highlights the winemaking process from harvesting the grapes to the finished wine in the bottle. Next, visitors return to the original winery and tour the underground limestone aging cellars. Following the tour, visitors are invited to taste a sampling of our wines. The basic guidelines of wine tasting are explained. Tours last approximately 1 hour.
Today, this National Historic Site is home to one of the leading wineries in the Midwest, as well as a brand-new distillery. Wollersheim Winery is open for tours and tastings from 10 am to 5 pm daily, year-round. Wollersheim Distillery debuted Aug. 14 and is open every day from noon to 5pm.
