As far as I know, winesap (an heirloom apple variety) and its progeny are all hardy only to zone 5. While winesap has some good qualities (spicy notes, good texture and crispness), you should find all of those on fully hardy Minnesota varieties such as Honeycrisp, plus get resistance to fireblight and apple scab.
