We recently listed some fine wineries within an easy drive of Milwaukee. There are more in the state, slightly farther Beyond Milwaukee. Here are some that we've either visited or from which we've tasted wines:
86565 County Rd. J, Bayfield
The Bayfield Winery is located high on the hills overlooking the waters of Lake Superior. Scott and Renate Hauser specialize in making traditional hard ciders, meads and country wines from primarily locally grown fruits and honey.
2170 Clifford Rd., Tripoli
This winery is located in an area largely populated by people of Finnish descent. It produces 17 different wines. This writer's favorite and their best seller is White Merlot.
Chateau St. Croix Winery
1998A State Rd. 87
St. Croix Falls
(715) 483-2556 or (866) 654-WINE
Chateau St. Croix Winery is a delicious taste of Europe.

Wines include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Red Zinfandel, Frontenac, Wild River Rosé, Port, Symphony, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Chateau Rouge and Thoroughbred Red.
