North Folk Winery

Welcome to the Vinsted

Mike and Ann Tessneer, local winemakers in northeast Minnesota, started North Folk Winery 13 years ago. They began by plucking crab apples right off the trees in their backyard, and later experimented with rhubarb and eventually berry combinations. In the tradition of local vintners like Elmer Swenson, who cultivated cold climate grapes in the 1940s, the Tessneers began making wine from grapes that survive in northern climates.

Morgan Creek Vineyard and Winery

Morgan Creek Vineyard and Winery, the first farm winery in New Ulm, Brown County in Southern Minnesota, was established in 1993 by George and Paula Marti. The winery follows a family heritage of immigrant entrepreneurs who were co-founders of New Ulm, Minnesota and business partners in the construction and operation of the Schell Brewing Company founded in 1860. Visit for wine tasting, craft beer and wood fired cuisine.
