Poynette winery presses first harvest since major loss

(WKOW) — When the snow melted in the spring, Rock n’ Wool Winery in Poynette lost 70 percent of its vines.

“They drowned, and we’re dealing with it,” Shaun Lapacek, the winery’s owner said back in June. “But we have vines that are nearly 9 ten years old we’re cutting trunks.”

But on Saturday, the winery pressed forward and got to press their harvest.

Grape stompers of all ages came out to help start of the process of turning grapes into wine.

There were soaked hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza.

The owner said despite this spring’s loss, it was still a good celebration.
