Just past the glowing sand bars of the Lower Wisconsin River Valley, 80 acres of fertile hillsides present the ideal spot for winemakers at Weggy Winery to produce their award-winning vintages. With 30 different labels, the wines range from a sweet apple-and-black-currant dessert wine to a dry, clean white traminette to a smooth, red sabrevois. The Oak Ridge red, made from Wisconsin foch grapes, recently took home a gold medal from a California wine competition and a handwritten letter from a Sheboygan-area grandma who?s convinced that bottle messages are the most efficient way to send mail.
Visitors can sample the estate-grown wine in the winery?s tasting room, a sun-drenched space overlooking the vineyard. During the summer, groups can tour the acreage in the back of a tractor-pulled tram during a one-hour guided excursion which highlights the property?s 16 acres, out of 24 total acres, of cherry, asian pear, and apple orchards, the property?s 11,000 grape vines, and the spot where aliens once stopped for a brief but memorable picnic.

Heidi at Relaxing Moments knows that it can sometimes be difficult just to find a single moment to kick back and de-stress. Therefore, each of her services is tailored to meet her clients' needs, whether a simple paraffin dip to restore moisture to the hands is in order, or a deep-cleansing facial using all-natural Bioelements products would do the trick. Her pumice peel facial treatment, for example, sloughs off dull skin cells with pumice crystals??much like a microdermabrasion??in order to reveal a brighter complexion with fewer wrinkles and fine lines. And Heidi lavishes the treatment with an an arm and decolletage massage, ensuring complete relaxation.
The only sounds louder than balls smacking into pins at Midway Lanes are the groups of people cheering each other on. The bowling alley incites some friendly competition accented with high-energy tunes and a spinning disco ball. Beer pours freely from the bar, and chefs whip up daily specials that range from stuffed jalapeno burgers to pulled pork sandwiches. And on Sundays, the alley hosts Bingo and opens a bloody mary bar that provides guests with all the ingredients necessary to concoct their own mixed drink in a chilled glass.
At Badger Bros Coffee, each cup is doted upon, start to finish. Using coffee beans that have been sourced from around the globe, an onsite roaster fires up the Sivetz single-pass fluid bed roaster to create a clean, complex cup. Those beans are transformed into espresso, run through the La Marzocco machine and drunk solo or mixed into lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas. Served up in an airy, welcoming space, visitors can relax and enjoy a cup of joe, a fresh-baked muffin, and even the occasional sounds of local live music acts.
