Forgotten Fire Winery is named in honor of the Peshtigo Fire of 1871.
In 1871, America's Forgotten Fire raged through Peshtigo
and the surrounding areas.

You may not remember the Fire.......
but you will remember the Wine~


The Peshtigo fire was a forest fire that took place on October 8th, 1871
in and around the area of Peshtigo WI.
Considered a "firestorm" and occurring
on the same day as the Great Chicago Fire,
The Peshtigo Fire has been largely "Forgotten"
The Peshtigo Fire caused the most deaths by fire in United States history
with an estimated deaths around 1,500 and possibly as many as 2,500
The Great Chicago Fire took the lives of 300 people
destroyed roughly 3.3 square miles of Chicago and
left more than 100,000 people homeless.

In 2011, Forgotten Fire opened and has been "growing" strong ever since.

the dreams of one headstrong couple.
