Wollersheim: San Diego Winery of the Year
March 22, 2012
Up against 1,700 wineries from across the globe at the San Diego International Wine Competition last week, Wollersheim Winery of Prairie Du Sac, Wisconsin received a record six awards. Co-owner Julie Coquard told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Wineries are growing in all of the states, but there’s a lot of emphasis on products made in our backyard. It’s very neat to get the recognition from California for our wines here.” For more information on how Wollersheim makes world-class wine, please see Midwest Wine Press, January 2012 article: “Wollersheim Celebrates 40th Anniversary.”
