Minnesota Wineries
and Wine Events in Minnesota

 Visit Minnesota wineries and taste Minnesota wines that are crafted from our own Minnesota grown fresh fruit.  

Minnesota winery

Minnesota's early autumn frosts cut our growing season short which has led to the development of hardy grape varieties that can be harvested early, and that can also survive our Minnesota winters.

Many visitors to Minnesota are delighted to discover our thriving wine-growing industry. A favorite romantic date often includes a visit to a winery.

One reason that Minnesota vineyards are possible is that Minneapolis lies at the same 45 degrees north latitude as does the Bordeaux wine region in France.

Like the Bordeaux region, Minnesota summers are sunny and warm and we usually have plenty of rainfall.

There are Minnesota wineries in many parts of the state, including at least one that is as far north as Bemidji.

More of our vineyards are found in the southern part of the state among the rolling hills and bluffs

Forestedge Winery: If you're traveling to the "North Country" of Minnesota to visit the Cass Lake, Park Rapids, Walker or Bemidji vacation area, or perhaps a visit to Itasca State Park, you will be very close to the Forestedge Winery.
