Salem Glen Winery is a fun place out in the country to go for a party or to tour. They have added a new outdoor building that is open to the lovely views but can shield you from the elements. You can take a vineyard tour or have a private party there. Private parties are the BEST! You can arrange... More

We took a chance on this winery based on Google search and reviews of visitors to the winery. The setting was perfect, we had blue skies and 31 degrees in February and the wine tasting room overlooked a valley just picture perfect. We started with a eight-wine sampler consisting of white and red wines dry and sweet and it gave... More

This winery overlooks a valley from the 2nd floor in the tasting room. A great way to spend an afternoon tasting, or drinking a glass of wine and relaxing. Everyone is very friendly and helpful with the wines and giving some suggestions on wines. As we were purchasing a few bottles, they offered a sample of another wine we had... More

Combining the owner's knowledge and style, the setting, the wines and the cheese plate this has been our favorite wine tasting in the MN/ WI area (6+tastings). The owner listened and was responsive to our wine preferences. Highly recommended.

They also grow aronia berries and make aronia berry wine, also known as chokeberry wine. Aronia berries are extremely high in antioxidants. This "new" fruit is growing in popularity. Aronia was well known to natives and early settlers, but has not been commercially cultivated in the U.S. since the turn of the century. This is one of the few wineries... More

It's a bit of a drive out here into "God's country" to find this lovely, scenic and private vineyard and winery, but well worth the trek. The service is welcoming and very friendly (including winery dog-resident Hailey, who laid down right at my feet during my wine tasting) :) These wines are definitely above average - and all of the...

The local winery is welcoming, friendly and has great tasting wine. I would go there again and am looking forward to tasking the ice wine soon.

The wines were good and we found one that each of us liked. The service was great and extremely friendly. Good ambiance if you want to drink a glass of wine on the deck.

Salem Glen Vineyard is just outside of Rochester, Minnesota. Very easy drive if you are visiting the city. 'Only a little over an hour from La Crosse, WI. Beautiful vineyard! The tasting room is gorgeous and large windows allow you to look out over the rolling landscape and the neat vineyard. And if you like really good Marquette wine.....dry red,... More
