Wild Hills Winery is a premier artisanal winery, cidery, farm, vineyard, and orchard nestled among the rugged beauty of the Driftless region of Wisconsin. Located on 80 acres of forest, fields, and meticulously cultivated vineyards, Wild Hills Winery is perched high on the Ocooch Mountain range and makes a breathtaking backdrop for family, friends, and wine enthusiasts to gather and enjoy the finest wines and local flavors our region has to offer. A family business, Aaron and Colleen Halverson have strong and deep ties to these remote, verdant hills and have plans to continuously add pollinator habitat to their land.

About Wisconsin Women in Conservation
WiWiC is a state-wide collaborative effort led by the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in partnership with Wisconsin Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside and Marbleseed (formerly MOSES). A three-year multi-faceted project funded by the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), WiWiC brings together Wisconsin women landowners to connect and learn about conservation practices, resources, and funding opportunities.
