The Driftless Area of Wisconsin is really beautiful — and is also full of fantastic wineries! Wineries are often serene areas to sit back and relax, while taking in some beautiful vistas. Many offer tours (some are currently on hold due to the pandemic) and tastings. Some host music, many offer small bites and wine by the bottle or glass.

I am not a wine expert — just a mom who enjoys peaceful surroundings and beautiful countryside views. We would love to hear what your favorites are as well!

Here are 6 that are tried and true – for a day with some girlfriends, your significant other or even your family:

Bailey’s Run Vineyard and Winery | N8523 Klitzke Rd – New Glarus | (608) 496-1966
