Our History

History Northern Vineyards Winery has been making wines since 1977, one of the oldest Minnesota wineries in operation.  In 1983 the Minnesota Winegrowers Cooperative acquired Northern Vineyards as a means of making and selling wines from the grapes produced by our grower members.  We are one of the first wine cooperatives in the United States and the only one of the local wineries.  Our members’ vineyards are located throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.  Robin Partch, our winemaker and manager, came on board in 1989 and has been producing award winning wines ever since.

We hope you will take a few minutes to explore our site and learn more about Northern Vineyards, our wines and our local area...and then come visit us!
