Free tastings are conducted during our open hours or by appointment. Tours of the winery are available subject to the availability of Ted the winemaker. Helen has assembled a marvelous collection of gifts for everyone's household. Hand painted window hangings highlight the collection. A large selection of shirts, classic glassware and wine accessories round out the choices. Quilters are especially welcome and you will find a sampling of quilts made by Helen. If you need some top-notch stitching done, she may be able to work it into her schedule.
Let Bauer-Kearns Winery and Gift Shop get you ready for the holidays. Give the gift of wine and so much more!
Bauer-Kearns Driftless White made from Lacrosse grapes grown on the slopes of the Platteville Mound won a Gold Medal with its entry. Bauer-Kearns opened its operation on Labor Day weekend last year. Ted and Helen are very pleased that their first entry into competition won a gold medal; especially since it was competing with many cold hardy wines. The 2008 Driftless released last May has a very pleasant taste that some compare with a Riesling wine.
In celebration of this medal the winery will have a 15% discount sale
on all gift items in their store during the month of September. The
medal winning wine is available in 750ml and 375ml bottles at the
winery on West Mound Road near the “M” and in over 12 retail stores and
restaurants in Southwest Wisconsin. If your favorite store or restaurant
does not have it, ask for it.
