CADOTT, Wis. (WEAU) -- Apple orchard season is here and families across the region will be picking apples, drinking cider, and enjoying the fall fun. However, 2019 will be different in the Chippewa Valley because there's a newcomer to the apple scene. Western Wisconsin is now the only place in the world where you can get a Champagne apple.
FIRST CHAMPAGNE APPLE BITE
The Champagne Apple was actually founded by my granddad," said Becky Mullane, co-owner of Dixon's Apple Orchard. "It was found in our canyon as a wild tree down in New Mexico."
The original roots for Dixon's Apple Orchard are about 12-hundred miles south from where they are now. When the apples were growing in New Mexico, they had a huge following.
And, this weekend for the first time, you can get your hands on one. They go on sale today!
