Wisconsin Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Wisconsin? Then look for a a Wisconsin Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Wisconsin wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Wisconsin has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Eau Claire, Washburn, Green Bay
and Sturgeon Bay, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of WI wines. Many specialize in fine WI wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Wine & Harvest Festival in
Cedarburg in September, Between the Bluffs Beer, Wine & Cheese
Festival in La Crosse in April, or October Wine Tasting in Maiden
Rock in October, you may find wines from Bayfield Winery, Three
Lakes Winery, Tenba Ridge Winery, LedgeStone Vineyards, and many
others at Wisconsin wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events
can include excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants
and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing
pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music.
Local musicians are out playing their best music to accompany the
wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Onalaska, Viroqua, Milwaukee
and Kenosha you can find a local wine, food and music festival that
will perfect your WI vacation. The most popular time of year for
these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but they are also
scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some great
wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony!
So although, you may not have time to visit all of Wisconsin's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
