In the early winter, when the temperatures drop and the fields turn icy, it’s time to harvest Ice Wine — a traditional dessert wine made with grapes that have frozen on the vine.

Erin Clune is always looking for something fresh and local to eat —- or drink! — in the middle of winter. So this year, she took part in the Ice Wine harvest at Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac.
