BOGO Tasting and Tour

 In the summer of 2012, after living in the Twin Cities west metro for the past six years, the Andrzejczak Family relocated to Roberts, Wisconsin. Four long years of searching, a bit of luck, and an odd coincidence yielded them this dream property – by a coulee amongst the trees, birds, turkeys, and deer – yet, just outside of the big city. Wasting little time, after 10 months of meetings, introductions, and education with county and township officials they became St. Croix County’s first bonded winery. In June of 2013, the Andrzejczak’s (with the help of family and friends) planted their first acre of grapes. Their embracing of the outdoors and love of wine has brought them to the beginning of this journey!
