Welcome to Northern Vineyards Winery!

Northern Vineyards Winery is one of the oldest wineries in Minnesota. We opened in 1977 and are celebrating our 41st anniversary this year. We are located in historic downtown Stillwater, just a quick 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 15 wine varieties annually using only locally grown, cold hardy grape varieties that provide our wines with wonderful flavors.

We are currently open every day of the week and serve wine tastings daily. Please visit our Contact Page for full hours of operation.
