Maple River Winery





 Maple River Winery in Casselton ND, a locally owned and run winery that specializes in producing wines made from fruits grown within a 75 mile radius.
Small town feel with a welcoming atmosphere, tours and tasting Mon- Sat 10-5.


 My husband and I stopped by for our first visit and were greeted and treated like special guests. We weren't, that is just the treatment you get from the folks that work there. We sampled a couple wines, browsed through the Pride of Dakota  Gift Shop and even got a little behind the scenes tour.


 Our lovely guide showed us where everything is made, stored and shipped.  Located in historic downtown Casselton makes for a unique building, appearing very small from the front entry one finds the literal depth of the building when you step inside. Farther back are halls and rooms that hold the wine making and bottling materials. NO nook or cranny is wasted!
too much wine???? no just my camera and lighting and a photographer that has no idea what she is doing!

 Seasonal is key...here in the Dakotas not a lot grows in the winter....uhm nothing grows in the winter. But the variety offered is simply amazing.

We love visiting our local wineries also. SO much to learn about soil, etc.

Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.
