We drove down from Apple Valley to taste good wine and this time ordered the cheese tray, family and staff is friendly and helpful The cheese tray was wonderful, we we would order it again. We came away with a case of wine to be enjoyed at home. It's always a good experience and I love the comfortable decor of the tasting room.

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, try Salem Glen's. It is full body, lovely color, and has a real complex berry flavor.

The Vineyard even offers a great selection of teas for those not wanting to, or can't drink at the time of the visit (How cool is that!). They offer plates of sweet treats, fruit and cheese. All very nicely chosen for the various types of wines they produce.

And what is better than all this, the winery IS family operated and family members all treat you so nicely and make you feel like staying for a long visit.

Visit, enjoy, and have fun.

We had our first experience at the Salem Glen Vineyard and were very impressed. As we drove up the front doors were open and both music and conversation drifted out. We enjoyed live jazz and several glasses of one of their whites. The wine was a wonderful surprise. Many times local small wine makers produce sweet wines with a poor finish but this was excellent. There were multiple wine tasting options available as well as cheeses and tea. Salem Glen is very rural and literally on a dirt road, something I hope never changes. The owner is building an observatory for night sky viewing. The only thing I can think of that they could change would be extending their hours. There are a growing number of wineries in SE Minnesota and western Wisconsin. This one is a most to visit.

Cute, Fun, Friendly! I came to Salem Glen Winery with a group of 15 women for a wine tasting bachelorette party. The staff (who had no idea we were coming) were extremely friendly and accommodated our large group well. They were knowledgeable about the wines and poured the tastes generously. I will definitely be returning soon :)
