Wollersheim Winery of Prairie du Sac won Winery of the Year at the San Diego International Wine Competition. The winery is celebrating 40 years in operation. It’s not the first time that they have won this award. Loved the quote from Robert Whitley, director of the competion and a syndicated wine columnist “Then there was the “man bites dog” narrative in which the Napa Valley thunder was stolen by a winery from Prairie du Sac, Wis. Strange but true. Wisconsin’s Wollersheim Winery placed six wines, including two from its second label, Cedar Creek, in the championship round. Two of those wines, the Wollersheim White Riesling, $9, and the 2010 Prairie Fume, $10, took best of class riesling and seyval, respectively.”
Who says that wines have to cost a fortune and come from California or France. You can get some award wining wines right here is Wisconsin. The winery has a great tour and Philippe and Julie do a wonderful job with attention to detail in their wine making.
Come and take a tour soon and enjoy an award winning bottle of wine from Wisconsin.

A Staycation is what a lot of you are doing this year. Taking a quick overnight or two night trip, not to far away from home, just to get away and do something different. Instead of that 10 day trip to the Rocky Mountains. It isn’t going to break the bank and you’re away from reality for a while.
Think about visiting Stoughton WI and experience all the history of this Norwegian founded city. Architecture to art are all around. Shop Main Street then grab a pizza and a movie. Classes are another option. All this is only walking distance from Naeset-Roe Inn, the Victorian bed and breakfast in Stoughton, WI. A show, dinner, a great bed and a fabulous breakfast. What could be better?
You’ll be staying in a quiet Victorian B&B and you can walk to the theater and bistro. You don’t have to worry about having a second glass of wine or a nightcap before you come back to the inn.
The Stoughton Opera House has released a sneak peek of the up coming season (more…)
Just got done with a Girl Friends Weekend for the Red Bowl Club. Did they have a good time! So did I.
The Red Bowl Club is a group of 7 girl friends that have been getting together for about 12 years. Once a year they pick a B&B and go there to reconnect, regroup and have a great time. And that is exactly what they did. I know that the piano hasn’t been played that much in 6 years. It held up well and the harmony was good. They accompanied themselves with a set of tuned plastic pipes that you hit on yourself or others to get the note out. What a blast. As you can imagine breakfast conversation was lively and they sure enjoyed the food as much as I enjoyed making it for them. (more…)
