Whispering Bluffs Vineyard sits on bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. The land where our vineyard is planted is part of the “ Driftless Region” of S.W. Wisconsin.

About 100,000 years ago glaciers bypassed this area leaving our grape vines to grow in soil untouched by the glaciers, but experiencing natures hundreds of thousands years of change. Today we grow cold hardy grapes on this untouched soil, giving our wines a truly unique and wonderful flavor.

Upper Mississippi Valley is the largest viticultural area {AVA} in North America, and the largest designated wine producing region in the World.  This area was designated as an AVA. in July 2009 .

The reason for this prestigious grant was due to the unique topography and resulting climate due to the glacier activity of the last ice age .

Our S.W. Wisconsin soil allow us to grow distinct cold hardy grapes unavailable in most other climates and topography in the World .
