Experience Craft Winemaking

JL Wine Experience is Northwestern Wisconsin’s Premier On-Premises Craft Winemaking Shop!

Winemaking is a craft typically reserved for a few artisan vintners engaged in professional wine making. Most people would never get to experience this age-old art. But, now you can make your own wine at JL Wine Experience!  You’ll work with owners Joe and LeeAnn to craft the perfect wine for you. You’re invited to join us single, plus one, or bring friends & family!

Easy. Affordable. Priceless.

Easy:  in just two fun and informative sessions, you will be an accomplished winemaker!

Affordable: And, it costs one-third of the cost of those expensive wines.

Priceless: The fine wine you create will be comparable to (or better than!) commercial wines you’d find in stores and restaurants. Not to mention the personal sentimentality of it!

The JL Wine Experience comes in two sizes:
