Millner Heritage Vineyard and Winery
Open: Year Round
The Millner family name comes from Franz Müllner (pictured left) who came from Neuhaus, Bohemia around 1880, which at that time, was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Franz’s wife Annastazia came with the children, Matt in particular, 2 years later in 1882. Later, Matt (pictured right) married a German, Theresea Gruber. Soon enough Matt and his brother-in-laws were making wine, whiskey, and many other spirits to which we have good stories of during the prohibition era.
Every generation since then has taken part in this family tradition, and it was decided in 2005 that we would take this family tradition to commercial scale. Ironically, Jon’s wife Annamaria grew up in Tiszauyvaros Hungary, not too far from either Eger or Tokay. She used to work at a vineyard and winery in Baden- Wurttemburg Germany and also in a vineyard in Iowa where Jon and Anna had met.
Truely above our expectations! We wanted to go to a vineyard to celebrate our friend's birthday and choose chose Millner Heritage Vineyards. The host was friendly and knowledgeable, the vineyard tour was entertaining and informative and the wines were unique and beautifully made. I highly suggest that you visit!
Absolutely love their wine. By far the best overall Vineyard I've been to in Minnesota. What the Foch?
I just went on a weekend MN winery tour, and this winery was by far my favorite. We sampled nine wines and I loved all of them. The facility is beautiful, and more importantly, in our group of 40+ people, more people bought cases of wine here than at any of the other wineries we visited. GO! You won't regret it!
My husband and I had our wedding reception here. Millner Heritage was the perfect combination of an indoor/outdoor venue with a lovely patio and spacious indoor area. Don and his family were so helpful in every step of the process, and they made us feel really welcome and at home. The setting was beautiful, and I was very proud to host our friends and family from Chicago in such a great location. The food was terrific, and several people remarked on what a lovely venue it was for a wedding reception. Thanks to Don and Jon and their family for helping make our reception really a beautiful and memorable one.
Fantastic time! Love the dry whites
