Half Moon Hill Farm & Winery

With a charming backstory and a welcoming vibe, Half Moon Hill Farm & Winery in Athen, Wisconsin, is a great first stop on your Northern Wisconsin winery tour. Sample a few of their meads (made from honey), ciders (made from apples) and grab a bottle or two to enjoy when you arrive back at the cabin. Plan to leisurely walk their farm, taking in the sights and sounds of their sheep farm, orchards and small licensed winery.

From their website, "You will NOT find any wine-from-a-kit, syrupy-sweet or commercially processed drinks here. You WILL find real, traditional, fermented craft beverages made with fresh local fruit and honey in dry to semi-sweet varieties. The result is unique and amazing!" (source)

From their website, "Here at Brigadoon Winery we are transforming our surroundings little by little with much hard work, perseverance and patience to reflect the natural beauty of Northern Wisconsin. It's a life's work, a labor of love and like wine, cannot be rushed." Tours are available by appointment. Plan your trip, make the call and enjoy sipping on life's sweetness!
