Driftless Wine and Cheese Trail

The Driftless Wisconsin Wine & Cheese Trail premieres October 13, 14 and 15, with special activities at each of fourteen businesses. This new collaboration between the state’s renowned dairy industry and its growing wine industry invites travelers to visit estate wineries and local creameries, tasting wine and sampling cheeses that have received national and international acclaim. The Trail is made possible through a matching Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin Grant through the WI-DATCP.

 

The Trail debuts October 13, 14,& 15, 2017.  All businesses will be open from 10 am – 5 pm and will offer special things such as discounts, education, tours, and tastings. Trail is free to attend; normal wine tasting charges apply.

The Trail is comprised of these businesses located roughly between Madison and La Crosse. The route provides a tour of the stunning natural beauty of Southwest Wisconsin’s Driftless Area, even more beautiful in autumn as the rolling hills glow with fall colors.
