Due to the crowd size and volume level during live music, we have decided not to offer our wine tasting "flight of 5" after 6:00 PM on Live Music nights. You are encouraged to enjoy full glasses or bottles of wine along with our cheese and sausage sampler platters and other edibles while you listen to the music. If you are visiting our winery for the first time and would like to sample our wines, we suggest arriving before the live music starts so that you may try the wine flight before the music starts. Beer and soda are also available for purchase.

John Duggleby, an award-winning Madison-area author of 11 books and hundreds of magazine articles, made his professional performing debut at age five at the Sunset Supper Club in Muscatine, Iowa, singing, “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby” after the piano man bribed him with a nickel. After a childhood hootenanny fling in a “baby Kingston Trio,” he grew up as a percussionist playing everything from orchestra tympani to garage band rock and roll. As an adult he learned guitar as a more benign living room alternative. He has labored in several under-appreciated folk, 60s rock, Cajun, bluegrass and world music ensembles, and these days plays over 100 gigs a year at venues ranging from coffeehouses to senior centers to festivals.
As a songwriter, John realized a decades-long dream with the 2014 release of his album Better Late Than Never, which can be heard athttps://soundcloud.com/duggleby. His songs have been finalists in the Great American Song Contest and Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) Awards, and runner-up in the internationalwww.SongoftheYear.com competition.
Dave Hopper of Mineral Point picked up the guitar in 1965 and managed to not only stick with it to date, but remember a ton of Sixties songs-- despite the adage about people who grew up during that era. He went through various phases of folk, rock, and blues, adding electric bass in the 70s. Today he plays in many musical ensembles including not only DugHopper, but the acoustic trio Still Stummin’ and a four-piece rock cover band Better Daze.
Dave is also busy throughout southern Wisconsin as a sound engineer and owner of a home recording studio. His skill at running live sound and recording musicians is matched by his patience, which he exhibited admirably in co-producing John’s album.

Teddy’s bio: I was born and raised in Madison WI. When I was a kid I was introduced to old time country. I think that's where my strong American roots originate from. As I got older I discovered a lot of musicians in different genres that have influenced my sound. Everyone has a story to tell, I like to tell mine in a song.
