Linda and Marvin Seppanen have long enjoyed traveling and visiting small family wineries. Those travels have taken us to wineries from Florida to Washington and Maine to California, as well as Italy, Portugal, France, Poland, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria, Quebec, Australia, and New Zealand. In particular we have visited many upper midwest wineries in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, and Nebraska.

We started growing grapes about 25 years ago by ordering four varieties from a seed catalog. In time we joined the Minnesota Grape Growers Association and learned of the many other grape varieties suited to our climate. Over the years additional grapes were planted and new vineyards started. We currently have over 2,000 vines representing nearly 20 varieties of cold climate grapes.

Our grape vines surround the winery, see why we call it “Minnesota’s Most Scenic Winery”. Please visit our Ridgeview Event Center to book your next event (meeting, wedding, family reunion, etc.)
