Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The winery was easier to find with directions from their website. It was a casual place that was very comfortable. The wines were very good with the price less expensive than other winery's we have been to plus you keep the glass. Dave the bartender was great letting us try a couple wines again so we would be sure of the wine we like the best to buy. The evening we were there they had a gentleman on guitar playing requests which was great and we all sang along. It closed a little earlier than we would have liked since were having such a good time with all the people there. We will probably go back in the summer to see the grounds and the patio area they have.

This place was a little hard to find, we used my gps on my phone and it wasn't exactly right! This place isn't fancy but they do have some good wines to try. Really great varieties to choose from. It was only $5 for seven different wines and you get to keep the glass. Great little find fairly close to home!

Indian Island is a family run operation....not upscale but a place that may appeal to a wide variety of customers.
Really enjoyed the 2012 Marquette...usually purchase whites here, the reds have not been great.

Fun to watch the clouds move in the prairie wind on the right day...on a windy day it's just too much being outside.

Very well kept, clean, polite staff. Would LOVE to see you get rid of the smelly plug-in air fresheners...takes away from the delicate nose of the wine.

$5.00 tasting fee, you get to keep the logo glass.

Never acquired the taste for wine, want to, but am a beer man. Thank goodness, they have beer also. I did the $5 wine tasting with my wife and did discover a wine I could drink. The 6 meat pizza was very good. I did get confused on when I ordered our food, where to pick it up and we ordered a cheese and cracker appetizer basket which was given to us with our meal which contradicted the "appetizer" title. Had a two person band from Mankato that performed very well. My wife did enjoy the wine and the bottles were flowing to all the tabels surrounding us. Nice setting, fun night, good wine.

Located between Mankato, MN and Janesville, MN. The rural setting is relaxing and compliments the wine tasting experience. After the wine tasting, we purchased our favorite bottles of wine and sat outside - the warmth of a bonfire near our table and the sound of live harp music setting the mood. The food menu is limited, but very good (including elk & bison burgers and wild rice soup). It is a winery that our group would return to.
