Our remodel at 1223 Caledonia Street is almost complete! We plan to be open in May from 1-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Call for additional hours.

The Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center will no longer offer wine tastings. They recently decided to place more focus on the educational aspects of the Cranberry Industry.

We will be changing our literature to direct people to our tasting room in La Crosse. Our wine will continue to be for sale at the Discovery Center. We appologize for any confusion or any inconvenience.


From the Tomah Journal - 12/2/11

By Steve Rundio

Diana Hobson believes in using local ingredients to make something good.
Hobson, a La Crosse winemaker, put Wisconsin cranberries on the national wine map after winning three medals Nov. 2 at the International Women’s Wine Competition in California. Her cranberries came from the Habelman Bros. Cranberry Co. of Tomah.

“I have a lot of fun working with local products and local producers,” said Hobson, who owns and operates DnA Vintners. “I’m a firm believer you need to work with what you have locally.”
A native of Sparta, Hobson has spent most of her working life in Monroe County as a social worker and probation and parole officer. She didn’t start making wine until 2001 and didn’t sell her first bottle until 2006. She got her first cranberries from Craig and Kathy Jensen of Warrens.
“The first wine wasn’t particularly good, but I was intrigued by the process,” she said. “I read a lot of books and talked to a lot of other winemakers.”

Hobson refined her process and developed three wines:
*Frost Watch Red. Semi-sweet with a crisp finish.
*Sweet Paradise. A sweet and smooth wine. She named the wine after Paradise Valley Cranberries, the operation owned by the Jensens.
*Chocolate Paradise. A wine infused with a natural chocolate flavoring described as “dessert in a glass.”
Chocolate Paradise was the star of the Fruit Wine category in California, where it won the only double gold medal. Frost Watch Red won a silver medal and Sweet Paradise won a bronze.
