For four generations, the Larson family has farmed the verdant parcel of land where Snus Hill Winery now sits, carrying on and improving upon the traditions of their Swedish immigrant ancestors who settled there back in 1878. From their American and French?style grapes, they've crafted a wide variety of award-winning wines, some of which are lovingly named for their beloved cats??and all of which wear the face of a feline on the label. Red, white, ros?, and even dessert and specialty wines create a well-rounded portfolio of varietals, from the bone-dry cabernet sauvignon the Whisker White, with notes of pineapple, mango, and graceful indifference.

Owned by an intrepid pair of dough-spinning brothers, Jeff's Pizza Shop is a haven for delicious, quickly prepared Italian-American cuisine. Patrons can design trillions of custom pizzas using the five pie sizes and an ample toppings list or choose a specialty creation such as a 12-inch Cordon chicken ($13.49), which mixes rich ham with chicken strips and dumps the meaty medley over a thin crust stippled with alfredo sauce and honey mustard. Diners diagnosed with meat-deficiency syndrome can wrap their lips around a 14-inch Farmer Frank and all its ham, ground beef, bacon, bison meat, and extra cheese ($15.99), and vegetarians can indulge in the self-explanatory spinach, havarti, and artichoke pie ($10.69/10") paired with Sprecher's root beer ($1.69). Jeff's menu delves deep into baked savories beyond pizza, heaving hot, hefty calzones ($4.99+), toasted subs ($5.79), and thick cuts of saucy lasagna ($5.99) directly into mouths before they can apologize for taking small bites out of all the breadsticks ($2.99/side).
