White Winter Winery

Wisconsin Winery Tour - White Winter Winery, Iron River, WI


White Winter Winery was founded on the principals of sustainability and utilization; to use what our region produces to make high quality products and build coalitions and partnerships with growers, producers and other businesses. Using locally grown fruit and honey in our products, we “work out” from our location until we find what we need. In this way, we are able to sustain not only ourselves but our neighbors as well. White Winter Winery uses what's in our own back yard to make Award-Winning Meads, Ciders and other great beverages!

Traditional Sweet
Just honey and pure water fermented to produce a sweet mead, with full honey aroma and flavor. Nicely balanced sweetness. Refreshing summer drink over crushed ice with a twist, or traditionally served warmed and spiced on cold winter nights. A traditional drink used for toasting on winter solstice to bring back the longer days. Often given to newly weds to ensure a fruitful union, the sweeter the mead the more fruitful the union! Most like what you would have had during the Renaissance. Considered the drink of kings and the nectar of the Gods!

A delicious blend of apples provides the basis for this traditional Cyser - a Semi-sweet style of mead made with apple cider. Excellent as stand alone mead or with sharp cheeses, spicy foods, or pork. Superb mulled for a reviving winter drink. Comparable to a late harvest Riesling.

Traditional Dry
Honey and water fermented for a just “off-dry” mead with a subtle honey flavor and a hint of citrus in the background without the sweetness. Excellent as a stand alone drink or with poultry, seafood or a green salad.
