Nice Article on Barneveld's Botham Winery

Doris Hajewski:
When Peter and Sarah Botham recently installed a new 3,200-gallon tank at their rural winery, they stepped back, looked at it and realized that it holds more wine than was made in the first year of the business.

"It's hard to keep up," said Peter, as he forked grapes into a device that separates the fruit from the vines. "I'm really thrilled about the potential, but it's a little scary."

He was talking about a new agreement the couple signed with Badger Liquor Co., a large distributor that will put Botham wines into stores around the state soon, including the Copps and Pick 'n Save supermarkets."It's hard to keep up," said Peter, as he forked grapes into a device that separates the fruit from the vines.
