About Cedar Creek Winery

Wine Pour

The Cedar Creek Winery is nestled in the wonderful old-world ambiance of the Cedar Creek Settlement, a restored 1860's woolen mill that was once the largest west of the Alleghenies.


The mill was powered by the rushing waters of Cedar Creek, which were channeled down the mill race and through an open-flume water wheel. The 50-horsepower water wheel generated electricity and ran the mill's

21 looms and knitting machines, which converted heavy Wisconsin wool into yarns, blankets, flannels and even socks for the old Chicago White Sox!


In 1972, the building was converted to a winery by Jim & Sandi Pape and became known as the Newberry and later the Stone Mill Winery. The upper floors of the mill were converted to shops. The winery in the 70's was famous for its cherry wines and the unique clay bottles they were bottled in. Traditional European casks were used for about ten years, and then replaced with stainless steel tanks and smaller barrels.


In 1990, the winery was purchased by the Wollersheim family and became the Cedar Creek Winery. The wine style changed to focus on traditional style grape wines with a few grape-based fruit wines. The building's cool limestone underground cellars provide an ideal environment for fermenting and aging wines in oak barrels.


Cedar Creek Winery shares the same winemaker as Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac, winemaker Philippe Coquard, but the two brands remain distinct. Cedar Creek wines have received recognition in both national and international wine competitions.


Guided tours of the winery last approximately 45 minutes and conclude with a wine tasting.  The tour starts with a short history on their building, a restored 1860's woolen mill, then follows with a visit to the winery's underground limestone cellars. Learn how the wines are made, aged and bottled along with viewing a short video on the art of winemaking.


After the tour, visitors are invited to participate in a formal wine tasting. While sampling several Cedar Creek wines, you can enjoy the view from the tasting room windows of the beautiful

Cedar Creek waterfall, which flows at the heart of Historic Cedarburg.
