Default Rosemary is still alive in Wisconsin. How to overwinter?

Amazingly, my rosemary is still outside and THRIVING. Usually I just buy a small cheap plant (usually with a coupon) from the local Shopko garden center every year.

But this one is hanging on despite several frosts. Of course it's been an unusual year, this december feels more like october or march.

So my question is: this rosemary is in my old herb bed, near the vegetable garden and is currently unprotected. Can I protect it and try to overwinter?

(If it dies, then I will just spend the extra in the spring to buy an ARP cultivar and plant it in my new herb/flower bed in front of a south facing brick wall.)
