Welcome to Northern Vineyards Winery

Northern Vineyards Winery is one of the oldest of Minnesota’s wineries.  We are located in Stillwater, Minnesota’s historic downtown –a pleasant drive from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.  From the moment you enter our winery you will feel the energy and enjoy the personal attention of our experienced tasting team.  Relax with a glass or bottle of our award winning wine on our deck overlooking the beautiful St. Croix River. 

Northern Vineyards is unique among wineries.  Our winery and vineyards are owned by the members of the Minnesota Winegrowers Cooperative.  Northern Vineyards crafts over 30 wine varieties annually primarily from locally developed, cold hardy grape varieties that provide our wines’ wonderful flavors.
