Anticipation: Receiver anticipates where the next ball will land. B&B version: Anticipation is half the fun of your B&B getaway.  Plan all the things you want to do by perusing the appropriately titled Things to Do section of our site.

Nice return: Receiver hits a strong return. B&B version: If you love a particular B&B, by all means do return.  At the Albany House B&B – Albany, an impressive 65% of their visitors are return guests.

Nice touch: Usually refers to a deft drop shot. B&B version: SevenOaks – Lake Geneva, offers its guests heated floors and heated towel bars to warm your soft, fluffy towels which we think is an especially nice touch.

Wisconsin Winery Tops at International Competition

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Wine and cheese and B&Bs has such a nice ring to it.  Many of our member inns provide complimentary tastings in the evening, featuring Wisconsin artisan cheeses and Wisconsin wines.  Yes, that’s right, we have some incredible wineries in Wisconsin, including one that took top honors at this month’s San Diego International Winery Competition.  Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac was named 2012 Winery of the Year, beating out entries from Napa Valley and 13 countries.  What an especially nice honor during Wollersheim’s 40th anniversary year, although the vineyards there date back to the 1840s.  Take of tour of the historic buildings here – you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to Europe – and allow time for tastings.  Then spend the night at a B&B in the Madison area or nearby Wisconsin Dells.   

Savor the local flavor includes sampling locally produced wines at many B&Bs. With over 40 Wisconsin Wineries and over 150 WBBA member B&Bs, the pairings are nearly endless. The Wine Cellar at Madison's Speckled Hen Inn is shown here.
