Get to Know Us at Timber Hill Winery
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. From the crushing of the grapes to the pour in your glass, we do it all with the joy of helping you appreciate the wine drinking moment you are in.
Amanda is one of the Midwest’s youngest female winemakers and winery owners. She prides herself in making wines with youthful energy and lasting impressions. After studying Microbiology at the University of Iowa and continuing her education in Wine Making and Winery Management from Kirkwood College, Amanda has been able to mix her interest in wine and unique education to capture the attention of – and contribute to – the culture of Wisconsin’s wine drinking community. When she isn’t busy coming up with her next award-winning wine, you will find her at Timber Hill’s vineyard located in the Town of Erin, Wisconsin with her husband Matt, the vineyard manager. Although this 1-acre lot of Petite Pearl and Frontenac Blanc grapes won’t be ready to harvest until 2021, their dogs Meeko and Rudy will be keeping close guard.
Meet the Staff
From the crushing of the grapes, finish of fermentation and onto the final bottling, we have the perfect blend of family, friends, neighbors, wine enthusiasts, and Timber Hill Winery taste experience specialists to see the processes through.
While Amanda’s mother Pam prefers the role of “taste tester” she also leads several business operations to support the team.
The spirit of Timber Hill Winery started as a fun and experimental partnership between Amanda and her father Tim, who now serves as assistant winemaker and consultant.
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.
