A short 15 min drive from our hotel, but felt like a million miles away! Jackie was a great host for our wine testing experience. My husband and... More

Beautiful setting, nice facility, great hospitality. Wines were good, and we found one to take home, but not spectacular. Would be a great venue for a small gathering. Definitely worth the drive.

The first Minnesota winery we've ever visited. Is it possible to make first-rate wines from hardy grapes that can thrive in this climate? Their answer: resoundingly yes! Salem Glen is what we've come to expect in a vineyard. Off in the outskirts, a little driving down gravel roads, livestock and deer to watch on the way. Once there you're greeted... More

Delicious white wines from dry to sweet. I really enjoyed them. Its not far from Rochester at all, but far enough its quiet and peaceful. The reds were ok as well.

Wonderful place, great atmosphere, and excellent hospitality. We had an afternoon to go and explore after tests at the mayo clinic. This place is a true gem. Loved the wines. Well worth the few minute drive outside of Rochester.

Great selection of locally grown wines. Gorgeous ambiance both inside and out on the deck (in nice weather). Live music on the weekends. Short drive on Salem Road SW of Rochester. Scenic trip, well worth it!

Great location outside of Rochester. The wines were great and the cheese plate was excellent. The hostess who served our wine tasting was excellent, with knowledge of the wine served. Great music.

If you are in Rochester try to visit Salem Glen. It is a short distance out in the countryside so you get to see the farms surrounding Rochester as well as sample wines made from local grapes. The staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming.
