Lake Pepin Winery

Lake Pepin Winery Great River Vineyard was first planted in 1988 mostly selling grapes to area wineries. However, after all these years we have decided to open a winery ourselves. We had eight acres of grapevines producing thousands of pounds of high quality grapes. We had an unused salesroom and adjoining production plant that was in danger of becoming a storage facility. We had Highway 61, perhaps the busiest tourism highway in Minnesota, going right by our door. The close proximity of other wineries making the area a winery destination, the scenic beauty of Lake Pepin, nearby Frontenac State Park, other area sites of interest all combined to make it obvious we needed to take advantage of this fortuitous situation. Thus, in 2013 we opened Lake Pepin Winery.

Our vineyard is located on the Great River Road - Highway 61 - about 70 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul, 12 miles south of Red Wing and 3 miles north of Lake City.
