Open: Year-round

Whispering Bluffs Winery opened the doors for business on May 26, 2012. Located in Potosi, Wisconsin and nestled along the scenic Mississippi River, Whispering Bluffs Winery is directly across the street from the Potosi Brewery and National Brewery Museum. Whispering Bluffs Winery is a purveyor of 16 fine wines. Our wines feature  local varietals such as Maréchal Foch, Marquette, Noiret, LaCrosse, Brianna, and Edelweiss. Many of our grapes are grown in the Whispering Bluffs Vineyard located in nearby Cassville. In addition, many wine enthusiasts are fond of our specialty fruit wines and seasonal wines.

Tastings are offered daily for $8.00. Tasting visitors select five fine wines and receive a Whispering Bluffs wine goblet with their tasting. Customers wishing to purchase a case of wine will receive a 15% discount off the case price. All of our wine bottles are collector's items. The labels are beautiful reproductions of original artwork depicting the birds of the Upper Mississippi Valley painted by Wes Helmick, a local artist who also is our winemaker. His original acrylics of birds and the landscapes of the Upper Mississippi Valley hang throughout the Winery.

The Whispering Bluffs Winery is proud to offer a large and unique selection of quality items to complement your wine selection. We have exquisite handmade chocolates sold individually or in gift boxes. Or, choose from our Wisconsin cheeses as well as a large selection of teas and coffees- espressos and lattes too. Gift items abound including gourmet food items, picnic baskets, hard-to-find housewares items, specialty apparel, and accoutrements for the wine connoisseur.

Whispering Bluffs Winery is located close to the Great River Road Museum of Contemporary Art, birding sites, the Potosi Brewery and National Brewery Museum, and campgrounds. Popular as a meeting place and as a location to find the perfect gift, the Winery is located in the beautifully renovated Potosi Bottling Plant. Comfortable seating, including a "living room" within the winery, encourages guests to sit and enjoy their wine or coffee while utilizing the free Wi-Fi. Soaring ceilings, exposed brickwork, hand-milled wood walls and ceilings all create an environment that serves as a beautiful backdrop and perfect venue for celebrations and special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, corporate parties, engagement events, bachelorette parties, and baby showers.
