About Us

The Winery

We warmly invite you to visit our Winery conveniently located midway between St. Paul and Rochester in the heart of historic downtown Cannon Falls. Our award-winning wines are handcrafted on-site mixing old traditions with new and combining local techniques with those from around the world. Opening each bottle of our wine offers a glimpse into a unique and time-perfected process. From the vine to the glass, we ensure that our product is the best wine Minnesota has to offer.

In 2004 we opened the doors of our beautifully renovated Winery, formerly home to Lee Chevrolet. The rich history, warm décor, and inviting ambiance are an excellent complement to our award-winning wines.

Enjoy a wine tasting or choose a glass of your favorite to sip while you relax in our beautiful Winery accented by century-old limestone walls.

The Vineyard

Our vineyard is located minutes from downtown Cannon Falls in the beautiful rolling hills of Sogn Valley. Our 19th century timber frame barn completes the picturesque setting and you'll swear for a minute you stepped off a plane into Napa Valley. Each fall we open our lively vineyard to the public for grape harvesting, tours and picnics.

The south facing slopes of our vineyard are not only beautiful, they are ideal for growing our luscious grapes. Our cold hardy grapes are based on Minnesota hybrid varieties that allow them to survive our cold winters and add a unique and delicious flavor to the wine world.

Very helpful staff, and good salespeople. My wife tried several different wines and bought a couple of bottles. I wasn't crazy about them but she seemed to like a couple of varieties. They sell beer too to accommodate people like me who don't appreciate wine. It was a beautiful afternoon and a nice day to sit at their outside tables. They sell a small variety of clothing items too.
