Hawks Mill Winery in Browntown is excited about the opening of their second winery, Hawks Mill WineHaus in New Glarus. After Hawks Mill Winery in Browntown opened in 2015, owners Ric and Teresa Joranlien were contacted by Primrose Winery in New Glarus because their owners were considering retirement. Primrose owners Bob and Peg Borucki decided to sell their building to Ric and Teresa, and the sale was finalized in the fall of 2016.
In March 2017, Hawks Mill Winehaus officially opened its doors, and the response from the local area has been wonderful. Hawks Mill WineHaus features daily wine tastings with many of the popular wine flavors from the Browntown location, plus several of the favorites from Primrose including Summer Wine and Classic American.
Hawks Mill believes that visiting a winery should always be a great experience, so every effort is made to be sure that customers enjoy their time at the Winehaus. This starts with a great staff and delicious wines, and continues with a cozy environment to relax and enjoy some locally made wines. While there is a full range from dry to sweet wines, the sweeter blends and fruit wines are truly remarkable. A refined palate and vast knowledge of wines is definitely not required to visit – their motto is “we offer delicious wines without the attitude”.
Welcome to Hawks Mill Winehaus
New Glarus is located in the heart of Green County in southern Wisconsin. Its rolling hills dotted with small towns, farms, and woodland pastures are much like the alpine farmlands of Glarus, Switzerland. When you arrive at the village entrance, you will quickly understand its popularity as a destination. New Glarus is America's "Little Switzerland."
For over 150 years, the beautiful little community of New Glarus, Wisconsin, has been a magnet for Swiss settlers. New Glarus was originally settled by a hardy band of 108 Swiss pioneers in 1845 who left the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland during an economic crisis. Since then, succeeding generations and a steady stream of new Swiss immigrants have kept alive the community's Swiss-German language, folk traditions, and music. This remarkable mix of old and new Swiss in New Glarus—plus an enduring dedication to preserving ties with the homeland—has made this little town a unique place to live, work, and visit.
Every year, thousands of visitors, including hundreds of Swiss tourists, are drawn to New Glarus to enjoy the atmosphere that thrives here and nowhere else outside of Switzerland. With small town friendliness and enthusiasm, New Glarus is proud to share its Swiss heritage, its chalet-style architecture, its two fine museums, its famous ethnic festivals, and a wealth of specialty shops and restaurants serving savory Swiss food.
