Central Wisconsin Winery and Vineyard | Half Moon Hill
As you make your way down the long gravel driveway, you’ll be immediately swept up by its charm. The main house has an English country cottage feel to it, with its blue shutters and half-cranked windows. As you walked around back, under the wooden trellis and through the patio, you’ll pass by brilliantly colored flowers and iron bistro tables. A bright blue door leads you down into the tasting room, complete with a standing bar and bottles of mead.
There’s a quietness to Half Moon Hill that only comes with true, country living. Yet even with this palpable tranquility, the farm feels so full of life. Their dog Zigzag bounds around the yard, an energetic border collie with two different colored eyes. He’ll drop a bone at your feet and crouch into position, waiting patiently for you to play fetch.
Owners, Gerrid & Sadie
MEADS & HARD CIDERS
For those who aren’t familiar, a mead is simply wine made with honey (instead of grapes).
To see the various meads and hard ciders they offer, head over to their website.
Next door to the sheep were four geese and a handful of chickens, all nervously keeping their distance when I came too close.
I can’t wait to return here again this summer to try some more tastings and enjoy the picturesque landscape.
Thank you Gerrid and Sadie for the wonderful visit!
