Celebrating 44 Years of Growing Grapes
and Making Wine in Minnesota
In 1973, our family planted the first vineyard in Minnesota with a pioneering spirit that has brought us unlikely fame in the wine drinking world.
Our tasting room opened in 1978 with the celebratory release of the first wines ever produced commercially of 100% Minnesota grown grapes.
Today, the second generation of our family continues this proud heritage of making wines in the world's most difficult climate – "Where the grapes can suffer."
