About Our Shop & ProductsVintage Elkhart Lake - Est. 2012
Vintage Elkhart Lake is owned & operated by an award-winning certified sommelier that hand-selects each of the over 250 wines that we carry (over 100 of which are less than $14!).
We work with you to make sure you find the perfect wine to suit your palate, pocketbook, and occasion. If we do not have that just-perfect wine in stock, we are happy to special order it for you at no extra cost.
In addition to wine, we also sell craft beer, spirits, Wisconsin artisan cheeses & chocolates, olive oils and vinegars that we bottle in-house, cigars, wine accessories, gifts, and gourmet fare.
We Love Local
We are proud to work with local proprietors like Indulgence Chocolatiers, Palo Popcorn, and cheesemakers from the Wisconsin – including Deer Creek, Sartori, & Saxon Creamery. Supporting local businesses is of utmost importance to us, so we also work closely with the Elkhart Lake Chamber of Commerce and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, local restaurants, and other local artisans to bring you the best that our region has to offer.
Olive Oil & Vinegar
Our olive oils and vinegars are bottled in-store, so you can be sure that it is fresh and top-quality. All of the oils are 100% extra virgin (first pressing), so they are full of flavor & antioxidants. Our selections change regularly, so if there is a flavor you love, be sure to let us know!
