About The Blind Horse Restaurant & Winery:
In September of 1862 a young man named Anton Dreps and his wife Josephine bought the 80 acre farm that the restaurant and winery now occupies. Many of the rooms in the restaurant and winery still contain the original 130 year old hand hewn log beams used to support the floors.
In 1891 the farm expanded to include what is now the Pine Hills Country Club and Golf Course. Like most farmers of that era, teams of horses were used to farm the land. One of the known work horses was called 'Birdy', a blind horse. After finding this information in the Sheboygan county historical archives, we felt compelled to name the restaurant and winery The Blind Horse.
The Blind Horse Restaurant and Winery is launching Wisconsin’s first food and wine destination by pairing gourmet food with elegant wines. The winemaking style will implore a minimalist approach combined with the latest technology to produce world class wines. The wines will be produced at Blind Horse’s state of the art winery in Kohler, Wisconsin.
