Weekend Food Round-up

Wisconsinites pride themselves on the state's beer and cheese, with good reason. We (ahem) produce some of the best of both (in my non-biased opinion).

But Wisconsin also produces some wonderful wines. And we all know that there's nothing better than wine and cheese pairings (except perhaps beer and cheese pairings.)

This weekend you can sample delicious local wine and cheese at two separate events(as listed on The Daily Page)

Friday (today!) November 20
, from 5-7 p.m. James Norton and Becca Dilley will be at Fromagination to celebrate their book Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin with a reading and cheese tasting that’s doubling as a launch party. Fromagination, 12 S. Carroll St., 5 p.m., free. Call 263-0734 for more info.

Saturday, Nov. 21, Wollersheim Winery
of Prairie du Sac is throwing a tasting party marking the release of Ruby Nouveau 2009 in its annual Beaujolais nouveau celebration. This latest vintage and other Wollersheim wines will be paired with various specialty Wisconsin cheeses provided by Roth Käse at the tasting, which will also include a self-guided “wine journey” detailing the creation of the Nouveau. Wollersheim Winery, 7876 Hwy. 188, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., free. Call 608-643-6515 for more info.

Take a sip for me!

Great idea - Nice blog!

The new wine is nice!
Should be great with turkey - or a pasta dish -
or burgers on the grill.And of course, with WI Cheese!

Good news if you missed it on the 21st - The 28th - next Saturday is "Vintage Christmas at the winery and even more neat tastings.Bring your camera and you can shoot a family holiday photo at the winery.

I help the winery get out the news and we're always glad to see more folks discover what a neat, friendly historic place it is - and to discover the really great wines (and cheeses!) that Wisconsin makes.

Drop in & enjoy!It's a really quick (maybe 30 minutes) & beautiful drive north on Hwy. 12 from Madison to Hwy 178 then about 2 miles to the winery
up on the hill overlooking the Wisconsin River.
