Nestled serenely in the hillside of Western Wisconsin, just 35 minutes from the Twin Cities, Forestville Vines calls 134 sprawling acres our site. The passionate team has been growing grapes that are suited to the colder climate since 2009. They strive to create a stand-out experience for all who come to enjoy their wines and the winery itself. The pastoral grounds, where wines are produced in small batches, offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
We have poured love into Forestville Vines and it is evident in every facet of our facility. From our beautifully restored schoolhouse, to our vineyards, to the one room schoolhouse and additional buildings on our property, everything has been carefully done with excellence in mind. We believe Great Wines begin with Great Grapes, and Great Events begin with Great people. With our experience in patience, attention to detail, and care, we can promise to assure the highest quality events for our clients.
Facilities and Capacity
The tasting room at Forestville Vines is a historic building. It was constructed in 1897 and served as a schoolhouse until 1964. It was raised up so a basement could be put underneath. These refurbishments allowed for the schoolhouse to be transformed with multiple spaces that can serve different purposes. A unique character of this structure is the flagpole that stands outside and that is original. The team at the winery welcomes love birds to enjoy one of the many event spaces, including indoor and outdoor options. One of the key elements of any gathering here is the scenic backdrop which adds to the memorability of any occasion.
Further back on the property we host two vineyards, that we pay special attention and detail to year-round to assure that this highest quality of grapes is achieved for our wine.
As a winery, Forestville Vines offers a selection of bar services and professional bartenders can serve your event. The team also provides linens, tables, and chairs for your convenience.
