Tailing Loop Winery

Tailing Loop Winery Upon founding the Tailing Loop Winery, we had a clear goal: to emphasize both the astounding natural beauty of Montana along with its rich history by preserving and building upon the honorable traditions of the Mountain West. We had a vision of what our establishment would look like, and when we located the Glacier Gallery property in the scenic Flathead Valley, we felt that it was the perfect embodiment of that core concept. The grit of the structure’s long history is a testament the devotion of the previous owner, Dr. Van Kirke Nelson, MD and his family. It was that essence that appealed to us on a deeper level. In continuation of the artistic tradition of the space, the work of a variety of talented Montana artists will be displayed upon the walls of the tasting room, featuring those landscapes and images that emphasize the splendor of the Montana West. We at the Tailing Loop Winery will select wines produced from hand-picked red and white grapes at reputable and well established family vineyards located through-out the Pacific Northwest, including critically acclaimed vineyards and cellars in the states of Washington & Oregon. These wines will be transported back to the main facility in Kalispell where each will be processed, bottled, labeled, and aged. In the fall of 2017 we plan to begin sourcing small quantities of high-quality heritage grapes from the Columbia Valley region of Washington to be produced into 100% Montana made wines. These grapes will be crushed, fermented, cellared, and bottled entirely at our facility in Kalispell.

  Blind Curve Sauvignon Blanc
A tropical fruit nose, refreshing citrus on the tongue and crisp, strong finish make this a white to savor. Made from Dancing Crow Vineyard grapes grown in Lake County, Calif.—a region known for its outstanding Sauvignon Blanc grapes—Blind Curve reveals a pleasing range of lively fruit flavors brought out by artful crafting. Lovely with hors d’oeuvres, light entrees and creamy desserts.
  Farm Dog Red
Currant, chocolate and berry aromas introduce this silky, dry red, livening the palate with a well-balanced range of fruit flavors ending in a long, warm finish. Saucy and bold as Lucy, Ten Spoon’s top farm dog, this blend of estate-grown Maréchal Foche and Mendocino County Petite Sirah brings out the best of both varieties. Excellent with strong cheeses, hearty menus and rich desserts. No sulfites added
  Flathead Cherry Dry
Made from organic cherries grown at Fat Robin Orchard and Farm on Flathead Lake’s Finley Point, this superb, dry dinner wine starts with a caramel nose, is lively up front with a smooth, lightly oaked finish. A sunny season with cool nights kissed the Lambert cherries with perfect conditions and they ripened bountifully, unscathed by frost or fire. An excellent year for a Montana favorite. No sulfites added
  Moonlight Pinot Noir
Elegant, with tantalizing fruit flavor, this Pinot Noir was created using grapes from Bill Cattrall’s vineyard in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. This 31-year-old hilltop vineyard produces world class Pinot Noir grapes. Moonlight has the smooth, sumptuous, quality of old silver. It pairs as exquisitely with grilled steelhead trout as with buffalo tenderloin. No sulfites added
  Range Rider Red
Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, New York, 2006, Bronze Medal. We’ve blended our estate-grown Maréchal Foche, Frontenac and St. Croix grapes to make a zesty, dry Montana wine with a fresh berry nose and full-bodied taste. Hand-picked whole clusters of grapes were packed tightly in tanks for two weeks—classic Burgundian carbonic maceration—to reduce acid and present complex fruit flavors. Lightly oaked, Range Rider Red complements a wide range of food from spanakopita to BBQ. No sulfites added
  Temptation Dry Apple Wine
A delightful surprise, Temptation floats light tastes of honey and cinnamon over a crisp white wine without the apple pucker. More of a sensation than a strong taste, apple flavor insinuates itself just slightly, making an exquisite finish. It pairs nicely with Thai food, seafood and a French baguette with creamy brie. No sulfites added
