Let's meet at Wollersheim for wine tasting and tour!
Minor update: If it rains, I may reschedule for the next day. I would cancel the event by 9 am on Saturday morning if rain is in the forecast and let you know via email. Also, I think the tours do book up during summer. So upon first arriving there we will lock in our time for the tours. If they are filled I'm ok w/ skipping the tour and letting others go and just joining in for the tasting. Let me know if you have any questions.
We can meet at the tables outside under the roof. I will print a small meetup sign. We can sit, drink, and chat. They sell chilled wine inside the shop and have plastic cups as well. Bring snacks if you wish to enjoy with your wine. In case of bad weather we can meet in the shop area.
Tour Schedule: Guided tours of the winery run daily at 10:15, 11:15, 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, 3:15, and 4:15. The tours last approximately one hour and conclude with a wine tasting. Tour fees are $3.50 for adults and children 11 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Tours are on a first-come first-served basis and are limited to 25 people. Once the group is together we can discuss timing for a tour at either 2:15 or 3:15.
Wine Tastings: A selection of our wines is available for sampling in our tasting room. Wine tastings are at no charge, and are available anytime during the day or along with the tour. You must be 21 years old or older to taste or purchase wine. You can only do wine tastings once while there. :(
Leave Madison on US-12 WEST, the West Beltline Highway. US-12 and US-14 split at Middleton.
Continue on US-12 WEST (North) for 17 miles to State Hwy. 188. Turn RIGHT on Hwy. 188 and go 2 miles to the winery. Entrance will be on your RIGHT.
From Spring Green:
Take Wisconsin 60 EAST through Sauk City and Prairie du Sac. Cross the Route 60 bridge over the Wisconsin River. Go 1/4 mile, then turn RIGHT (SOUTH) onto State Hwy. 188. Go approx. 3/4 mile. The winery entrance is on the LEFT side of the road.
Might be a good idea to car pool. There is a good amount of parking space, but with sampling and drinking you might want one designated driver. :) Please post on the site if you are willing to car pool There's a few of us who will be heading out from the Waunakee area.
Hope to see you there!
