“taste the fine wine”
Forgotten Fire Winery is owned by Lindsay and Joe Callow. The Callows opened the winery on October 1st 2011. A visit to Rose Valley Winery in Michigan led to a fateful meeting with winemaker, Adam Kolodziejski. Adam expressed how his passion had led him to starting a winery, and how easy it would be for the Callows to do the same. Joe and Lindsay quickly found themselves believing that Adam had too much to drink that day. Nonetheless, after a few years of research, license applications, winemaking internships, and tears…Forgotten Fire Winery was born. Named in honor of the Great Peshtigo Fire of 1871, the winery sits on land located in the town of Peshtigo, though the actual address is in Marinette. Lindsay, a native of Waukesha, WI, grew up in an Italian family where wine was always a part of family dinners. Lindsay has a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with an emphasis in Marketing from UW-Whitewater. Her years of experience in marketing and promotions make her the backbone of all the winery events and promotion. Joe may not admit it, but Lindsay has the superior palate and tends to be the final say on all the wines.
Very nice place. Staff is very knowledgable about the wines and also in letting out of town people of of other good places to frequent. Wine has really improved in flavor since they first opened.
