Spring Break time has finally arrived and the innkeepers at The Speckled Hen Inn Bed and Breakfast in Madison WI know you are just dying to get out of the house and enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. What better way to do this than to take a little road trip.
Less than an hour’s drive out highway 12 from Madison you will find Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac, WI. Their winery is open daily from 10-5 and the historic winery offers tours, tastings and fun shopping and sight-seeing on any early spring day. Select a few bottles to take home with you or become a member of their case club.
What pairs better with wine than cheese? And right across the river in Sauk City you will find a Carr Valley Cheese store. They are producers of some of Wisconsin’s finest Artisan Cheeses made from cow, goat, or sheep’s milk or combinations thereof. Try a sample and ask about pairing a cheese or two with the wines you just purchased. Your innkeepers will happily provide you a board, cheese knife and some wine glasses when you return to relax at the Inn.
But first, while you are in the area head back in to Prairie du Sac and make a stop at the Ferry Bluff Eagle Council Overlook to see the American Bald Eagles. The overlook is just 2 blocks south of the Highway 60 and Highway 78 intersection in Prairie du Sac, right along the Wisconsin River.
What a great way to shake off the winter blahs and get out to enjoy some of the Best of Wisconsin.
