If you are looking to "wine" down this is the place to go! Hello Vino has a relaxing, cozy atmosphere and a great selection of wine. They offer other signature cocktails and delicious food! They do tend to fill up quickly during the busy summer weekends, so call a head of time to see if they can accommodate your group.

Although there are no beaches to lounge out at, there are many public accesses. There is also a sand bar in which you can anchor out at and experience some on the water food (Burger Barge) & ( Torch Lake Tiki)! Torch Lake is a "Must see!". The lake is known for its Caribbean blue color and crystal clear water. It is labeled the 3rd most beautiful lake in the country!! So we ask while visiting please be sure to help keep the lake as beautiful as the first time you laid eyes on it! We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
