Hand crafted exclusively for Out of the Woods Winery in Chetek, Wisconsin. Three bars to choose from: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, California Blueberry Petite Sirah, and Indiana Apple Pie Wine. The natural sugars in the wine give these soaps a smooth, sudsy lather. And they smell lovely, too.
Out of the Woods Winery is a new take on an old dream. Long-time visitors to Hayward are familiar with HookStone Winery, founded over twelve years ago by Richard Halajcsik, who operated the winery under the motto, "Bringing Nappa to the North Woods." HookStone had a long and successful run until Mr. Halajcsik's passing in January, 2017. Purchased in the fall of 2017, HookStone Winery is open once again under new management and a new name: Out of the Woods Winery. Stop in and check out our take on life's simple pleasures: Good Company, Craft Drinks, and Hot Eats.
Out of the Woods Winery is a MacLaughlin Family collaboration. We are open and serving wine for tastings, by the glass and by the bottle. We have a selection of wine, cider and mead from wineries in Wisconsin and all over the world. We’ve recently started making our own wines and ciders as well. Expect some fruit wines, ciders and meads before Birkie Week in February. We’ll have some white wine available by the New Year. Reds will take a little longer. If you're a foodie, we also have a selection of olive oil and balsamic vinegar to sample and purchase. Feeling peckish? Try a flatbread pizza, a meat and cheese plate, a hot pretzel or baked brie. Take a load off - stop by for bite, a glass of wine and good company.
Patricia MacLaughlin Gallery
Out of the Woods Winery, in partnership with Art Beat of Hayward, is proud to house a gallery created in honor of our mother and gifted painter, Patricia MacLaughlin. The gallery will feature four exhibits per year.
We are currently showing a group exhibit comprised of work from local artists. Stop by and enjoy the show with a glass of wine. And if you like what you see, the pieces are available for purchase.
Digital images of the works can be seen on our Gallery Page.
