Overview

Indian Island Winery is a farm winery with grapes grown in our own vineyard and other local growers. Indian Island Winery is a family operated business owned by Ray and Lisa Winter in partnership with son Tom, daughter Angie, and daughter-in-law Angela. We produce award winning wines that are 100% Minnesota Grown. Our winery was built on a site once used by Native Americans as a summer hunting camp. Teeming with wildlife, the land once was nearly 100% surrounded by water. Throughout past years, many artifacts have been found keeping us intrigued by the history of these grounds. Come, join us and experience what Indian Island Winery has to offer you.

This family enterprise is a gift and a surprise. The Winter clan has created a welcoming place to meet friends and learn about the wonderful wine made from their vineyards. Their pleasure and enthusiasm makes it a perfect place to spend an evening.

Wine tasting was good . Staff helpful with selections. Didn't get out to the Vineyard but will do that when we get there another time. Music outside was not to our liking and way too warm to sit out there. We ordered 2 different pizzas...More

Thank you for the nice review, and I am sorry about the Ice wine! It is actually available to taste for a $2 fee, but obviously our staff must not have let you know that, so I am very sorry about that!
