and heres a few fun wines i found, in 2J's:

dom perignon $118.95, fonseca vintage porto 2000 $109.99,

our very own wisconsin varieties, including those made out of:

blackberry, cherry (dry and sweet), strawberry, peach, plum (my dad makes that sometimes!  we have a plum tree in the backyard), blueberry, elderberry, cranberry, rhubarb (Hahaha!)

ranging in price from $6.49 to $11.99 (for the elderberry, cause i knew you'd want to know, cause i'd want to know).

just goes to prove that our favorite statewide passtime is clearly:  "Making everything that grows into a form of intoxicating beverage."

note, 2J's has the most expensive box wine in town, strangely enough.

The sheer love of beer makes me feel like I should become an honorary Wisconsinite. If that's what you call yourselves.
