This past weekend, Liz and I attended the Medieval Feast at the Maiden Rock Winery & Cidery in Stockholm, WI. When we left home, the sky was grey but there was no precipitation. After stopping in a couple of shops in Pepin, WI, where we eventually stayed the night, it began to snow. By the time we headed to the Cidery, it had snowed about 3 inches.
Maiden Rock Winery and Cidery is located on top of the bluffs that form the Mississippi River Gorge. There is a long winding hill to climb to get to the top. We made it halfway up when our tires began to slip. We were forced to turn around and find another way up the hill. Luckily, there is another road to get there a few miles up the road. We’d never taken this road, so we didn’t know what to expect. It was dark, the visibility poor, and we had to get a running start to make it. We eventually climbed the hill and made it to our destination — about 20 minutes late.
I’ll share more videos soon, but here’s one that celebrates the Wassailing of the Apple Trees:
