While the harsh Wisconsin winters may not seem suitable for grape-growing, the climate and soil are surprisingly forgiving. In fact, grapes are already growing in the vineyards of Chateau St. Croix. The vineyard is home to six varieties of hybrid cold hearty grapes: St. Croix, E.S. 6-16-30, Prairie Star, Sabrevois, Frontenac, Marquette and King of the North. The grapes have been delicately planted on a 2 1/2-acre parcel on the 55-acre grounds of the Chateau St. Croix. Upon maturity, our crop should produce approximately 5 tons of grapes. As our winery grows, we hope to increase our vineyard to ten acres. We prune our vines several times a year and harvest the grapes in September. After we crush the grapes and start our wines. As we value our precious environment, we have chosen an electricity-free fencing method to counter the bears and deer that could potentially harm our grapes. Read less
