Food and wine festivals are the perfect way to get a little taste of everything. Wisconsin's chefs, wineries and producers team up to provide the ultimate foodie experience. Here are a few of our favorites.
A celebration of the senses with award-winning wines, grape stomps, live music and heritage foods at the von Stiehl Winery located just steps from the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.
Coming from a name like Autumn Harvest Winery, you know this event has to be good. Delicious pies from Firewoods Traveling Pizzeria, chainsaw carving demonstrations, a free corn maze and wagon rides, and a stop by Visit Eau Claire Fun Patrol are a few of the highlights. Taste wines, listen to live music and pick some apples.
