    Not all of Wisconsin’s extraordinary wine growers and producers belong to nor adhere to the philosophies of the Wisconsin Winery Association. You would better serve your audience by looking beyond the obvious sources to identify some of the equally popular and long-standing vineyards for stories and insights regarding legislation, sales, etc. that stand apart from those of the association members. We welcome your interest and serious inquiry.

      Thanks for commenting on the Midwest Wine Press Wisconsin wine distribution story. As a relatively new publication, we’re in the process of establishing contacts in the industry and your input is appreciated. Our reporter wrote the story from the perspective of the sources she was able to contact, which admittedly were somewhat limited. However, part of the reason for the story is to advocate for the Wisconsin wine industry. (As a resident of the state with perhaps the worst state government in the U.S. (IL), it was surprising to learn that WI has more restrictive distribution laws than ours.)

      Would you be available as a source to contact for future articles in Midwest Wine Press? Also, I’d like to visit Botham Vineyards this spring or summer and I look forward to the possibility of meeting you.

      Best regards,
