Got Scentsy? Get it now! Great gifts;)
The Wisconsin Ledge might be just another name for the Niagara escarpment’s recognizable limestone cliffs. But thanks to a 7-year effort by wine maker Steve DeBaker from Trout Springs Winery in Greenleaf, the Wisconsin Ledge recently became the name of the state’s newest American Viticultural Area or AVA.
Viticulture means growing grapes. The 3,800 square mile area from Cedarburg to the northern tip of Door County’s mainland now becomes the third federally recognized grape-growing region in Wisconsin. Our special underlying geology, soils and climate are especially conducive to grape production. With two preceding AVAs, we have become the world’s largest grape-growing region, encompassing nearly 30,000 square miles in four states.
The Wisconsin Ledge designation will boost the status and marketability of our region’s award-winning wine products, and literally put us on the map. The AVA designation will surely add to the unique sense of place that the escarpment provides, as well as promote other locally grown food products and stewardship of the land and water.
Belle Isle Inn’s guests can enjoy local wines from Kewaunee County’s von Stiehl and Parallel 44 Wineries with each stay at our B&B!

My best days begin with beauty. Some days I search, some days I create. Today… I am surrounded, infused and in awe 😉
Wis. Stat. s. 125.315 prohibits the “giving” of fermented malt beverages to evade law (i.e., businesses such as credit unions, barbershops, salons, etc., giving away beer to customers without a fermented malt beverage license). Wine and spirits also cannot be given away in the same manner under Wis. Stat. s. 125.67. Again, the penalty under state law is a forfeiture of up to $10,000, 9 months in jail, or both (Wis. Stat. s. 125.66)
-this is not legal.
Although as a B&B I am allowed to offer wine (2-4oz glasses per guest) and have on only one occasion had the guest request her wine while having her manicure.
I personally do not suggest or advise that alcohol be consumed during beauty services!
Let me know if you have any other questions 😉
Very Sincerely, Tia
p.s. If you’re not a great service provider, ie. this shade of pink will look GREAT under the bar lights, and alcohol may make look and feel better to your client, the $10,000 fine may be worth the risk…Seriously?
