Wisconsin is more than beer and football. With to three American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and more than 120 Wisconsin wineries, there is a lot to sip in. As part of the Wisconsin Wine Country Travel Guide, we have uncorked a few of the best places to stay while pouring into the Wisconsin wine country.
Where to Stay
Among the Vines
It’s one thing to visit wine country, it’s another to immerse yourself in it. Staying on a working vineyard at a winery hotel is the perfect way to do just that…especially in Wisconsin wine country.
For the ultimate vineyard experience, you have to stay at Brambleberry Winery. It’s a vineyard, bed and breakfast, farm and event space and visiting feels like a trip to the Scottish Highlands. Sip wine with their lambs or check out their shaggy Highland cattle. Great for a romantic getaway or a girls weekend, there’s nowhere like this anywhere else in the state.
N3684 Claire Rd, Taylor, WI 54659
Stay among the vines and get spectacular bluff-top views from the cottages and lodges these folks have right on site. There are also two suites available above their tasting room. Complimentary wine accompanies any stay!
17 North Street, Fountain City, WI 54629
These folks offer a “glamping” option for those looking to stay near Door County but not really rough it. The charming cabin is a great option for families as an intro camping experience without all the equipment. It can also be a rustic and romantic way for a couple to unplug.
