One of the Best Wineries in Wisconsin!

We have more than twenty different varieties from our small family-run winery in southern Wisconsin. We create wines that leave an impression from start to finish, built from Wisconsin vineyards. Our winemaker enjoys coming up with varieties made for the appreciation, the joy, and the pure love of making and sharing delicious wine.

Our boutique winery located just off the Ice Age Trail in Rock County between Madison and Janesville, has a unique appeal in pairing people, wine, and experiences perfectly. We offer a surprising treat of affordable wines made with a variety of cold climate grapes.

Wisconsin Winemaking

 In the winemaking world, it’s often heard that you can’t make good wine without great grapes. That is why we use wines crafted from meticulously farmed cold climate vineyards.. The vineyards boast the best sites, so our wines can express the flavors of the places they are grown and represent each glass we pour. But more importantly, these grape growers cultivate the passion and character needed to make Timber Hill Wines at the center of a true Wisconsin made wine drinking experience.
