The State Fair is an excellent time to celebrate all things Minnesota. We have been featuring Minnesota beers, wines, and spirits all month and the support of our customers has been great. Minnesota is blessed with a robust and healthy brewing industry. Minnesota also happens to have a group of gifted and determined grape growing and breeding pioneers. These viticultural visionaries have created cold-hardy and disease-resistant grape vines that can stand up to our harsh climate.  We are now enjoying the life-long efforts of people like Elmer Swenson and Peter Hemstad and the wines below, made from grape varietals they created, are proof that their work has been a success. We’ve even included a Minnesota made mead or honeywine.

The overall state of the Minnesota grape growing and winemaking industry is in a period of growth and improved quality. Much credit goes to the gentlemen mentioned above, and many passionate and hardworking folks making great wines in wineries spread out all over the Gopher State. I am proud to offer wines from over a dozen different local producers. Below are some of my recent favorites.

Cheers,
