BRANDON — It’s early morning in Brandon and activity is already picking up at the Neshobe River Winery. The sun rises over the hill behind the barn, bed and breakfast and garage, and the thick morning dew glistens on the grass.
Clad in a blue work shirt and boots, Robert Foley walks the rows of grapes he and his family have been growing for the past nine years. There are three varieties of grapes, Saint Croix, Marquette and Frontenac, which are used to produce wine. The winery produces eight varieties of wine, including cassis, gluhwein and port.
