Come Visit Us!
We always strive to give incredible customer service to all of our guests and provide a unique vine to wine experience. We are a fully functioning 40 acre farm where grapes are grown, processed and made into wine. We want you to have an enjoyable visit! During your visit please keep in mind that we are a private business in a rural setting with neighbors whose rights we respect.
Please be prepared with a valid ID. All guests who are drinking must be 21 years of age and have valid identification.
We are located between Highway 29 and the west side of Lake Irene, just one mile north of the Miltona Outpost Gas Station and five miles south of Parkers Prairie, an easy 15 minute drive from Alexandria. Turn east at the intersection of Highway 29 and County road 14, right at the first gravel road, Irene Court and we are the first drive on the right.
We can accommodate wheelchairs in our tasting pavilion and have wheelchair accessible toilet facilities. However, we are a working farm and the natural lay of the land may make some areas inaccessible to wheelchair users due to the unevenness of the ground.
PATIO Table Service
This summer we are serving wine by the glass, tasting flight and bottle, along with small plates of cheese, crackers and other small snacks for pairing on our outdoor patio along with a selection of non alcoholic beverages. In case of inclement weather we have limited indoor seated service. There is no outside food or drink allowed.

Children must be closely supervised at all times. For the safety of your children, the enjoyment of other guests, we must ask that children of all ages are with an adult at all times and not left to run around the property on their own. If this level of supervision or behavior cannot be met, we ask that you make arrangements to leave children at home. Thank you for your understanding.
We allow dogs on the property that are leashed. Water bowls can be provided in the patio area. We do not allow animals (except for service animals) in our tasting room as it is against health code. Thank you for understanding! We ask that you clean up after your pet and ensure the safety of other guests around your animal.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, or to remove guests who are disruptive, disorderly, or disrespectful. Please respect our staff and other guests of our farm.
