We were honored to be invited to share a selection of our wines at the 2023 Agritourism Learning Retreat, held at Helene's Hilltop Orchard in Merrill, WI. We collaborate with the orchard to make apple-based wines, such as Helene's Honey Crisp and Helene's Cran Apple. These seasonal wines are released in the autumn and are available exclusively at Helene's Hilltop Orchard and Sunset Point Winery.

Some of this year's Helene's Honeycrisp apple wine has refermented in the bottle. The wine itself is not harmful but the bottles are not made to withstand the pressure of carbonation and are in danger of breaking or having the cork pop out from the pressure inside. If you have any bottles of 2022 Honeycrisp, please return them to the winery for an exchange or store credit if you are able. Take care in opening bottles if you choose to dispose of the wine; point the cork away from your body and keep a firm grip.
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who voted for us! We did not make the Top 16 but it was an absolute joy to be nominated. Cheers! 🍷
