About Us


Ryan met Billie Marie while living in Missouri and the two spent many days along the Missouri Wine Country trails. They began making wine as a hobby, and when friends and family started asking if they could purchase their product, Ryan decided this was something he wanted to pursue on a larger scale. He asked his parents if he could start a vineyard in Rome, Wisconsin, on the family farm, and Half Krakt Vineyard was born.

The family vineyard is now in its fifth year of growth.

When Billie and Ryan decided to marry in 2009, a vineyard wedding seemed only fitting. “Our friends and family are still talking about how unique and fun our wedding was, and what a beautiful backdrop to our special day!” That was years ago. Billie Marie still has a passion for wedding planning and misses all the fun that went into planning her special day.

When they decided to move to Wisconsin to be closer to family, they noticed that a vineyard wedding was not an option for the Madison and surrounding areas, so they decided to begin their own venture so that others could share the same unique experience.

Now, Ryan and Billie Marie desire to provide their guests with the same memorable and unique event at Over the Vines, the only wedding and special events facility in the area with an on-site vineyard, as they did on their special day.

Plan a romantic adventure for your wedding day at Over the Vines Vineyard. Exchange vows in a towering barn or outside next to our vineyard, while surrounded by your loved ones, for the picturesque wedding of your dreams.

Over The Vines is conveniently located between Madison and Janesville, a short drive from Milwaukee, and just off the Interstate making it an ideal location for guests traveling from all around.
