Best Wine Selection (Bar, Restaurant, or Winery)

Once again, Bemis Bluff Winery (E2960 Hageness Road, Eleva) demonstrates it has the area’s best wine selection. Enjoy the scenery while sipping fruit wines, or better yet, a wine slushy on a hot July afternoon. (Is it summer yet?) With award-winning wines, Infinity Beverages (3460 Mall Drive, Eau Claire) offers vinos to satiate any palate, from their Riesling and Moscato blend, Desire, to their Syrah and Pinot Noir blend, Solace. Although they’re not a winery, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse (4751 Owen Ayres Court, Eau Claire) serves the perfect wine to pair with your meal. –Stephanie Nesja
