(after party at Grand Geneva!)
Studio Winery started with a blue ribbon won with a wild grape "ditch wine"entered in the Wisconsin State Fair in 2007. That one blue ribbon started the dream. Nearby Lake Geneva didn't have a winery, so they started to look in that area. Along came the Great Recession of 08 which enabled them to buy the building for their future winery. It had been a machine shop for 50 years and was a bit dirty and run down. But it was perfect in every way. It sat on an acre of land to put some grapes. It was on a main street. And it had a nice big apartment above for them to live in! After an extensive rehab, we opened the winery doors in May of 2012.
