In the heart of the Portage Lakes Prime Vine Winery is tucked away on beautiful grounds

The Prime Vine Winery estate was designed by local architect and contractor Clifford B. Ferguson, and is an example of the Colonial Revival style that was popular in the 1910s.

The Swiss-born Zimmerly family built the estate between 1919 and 1921. The three-story mansion, which is nearly 7,000 square feet in size, still has its original floors, plaster walls, woodwork, and wooden doors. The property also features 9-foot ceilings, large bedrooms, a separate staircase for servants, four fireplaces, and multiple sun rooms.

Owners Jim and Julie Pulk also own Venture Wines in Napa, California, which supplies the Tasting Room. In addition to wine, they plan to launch a distillery and produce apple bourbon with apples from their orchard, as well as cognac from grapes grown on their future property.
