Description: Experience our award-winning wines in a fun and relaxed setting in the heart of the Black Hills. Find us three miles northwest of Hill City on Highway 385, just a few miles from Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Crazy Horse Memorial. We’re Hill City’s only working winery and Sandi Vojta, our fifth generation winemaker, handcrafts each wine, often using old family recipes, just a few steps from our Tasting Room. Start your Prairie Berry Winery experience with a free wine tasting of up to five of our award-winning wines, including our Anna Pesä handcrafted traditional European wines, at our Tasting Bars. We produce a variety of wines in styles for every palate – from crisp, dry wines and robust, oak-aged reds to sweet, fruity varieties. Our Kitchen offers housemade menu items including gluten-free, vegetarian and kids’ options. Menu selections pair perfectly with our wines, vary with the season and many of our ingredients are sourced locally. Enjoy a meal on our patio with our beautiful views of Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak). Our brewery, Miner Brewing Company, is located next door.

I attended a wine bistro that was excellent! The theme was bacon. How can you go wrong with that? The atmosphere was very warm and inviting with a live band that provided background music. There were 4 courses and each had a wine paired with it. Each course was delicious! I have attended a bistro each summer for the last 5 years and have never been disappointed. It is definitely worth the money for the ticket. I highly recommend this to anyone.

What a lovely winery and bistro! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were greeted cordially, and expertly directed to where we needed to be. Our wint tasting guide was very fun and informative! We then grabbed lunch, which was the best lunch we had on our vacation! I've seen a couple reviews about the small menu offering; its primarily a winery! But the food was fantastic! I felt the tasting environment and staff were much better than wineries we visitied in Napa Valley! The wines were very good as well! My wife is not normally a wine consumer, but liked several of these!

We also got the meat and cheese appetizer trays for a later meal; fantastic as well.

Im glad to see Trip Advisor pulled the one terrible review which had nothing to do with anything except bein offended by the name of one of the wines (red a## rhubarb)

Prairie Berry Winery has a really lovely tasting room and provides tastes of 5 wines at no charge! While the selections tended toward semi-sweet and sweet reds, they were quite good and the crabapple white was surprisingly crisp and delicious. The winery is convenient to Keystone and Hill City and is a nice diversion.

Did find the portions a bit pricey, especially for local business people on lunch break. The seating for diners was in the middle of retail settings, which made it a bit cramped.

Thank you for stopping in! We love to have the locals visit.
We're glad you thought the food was good, and appreciate your feedback about the pricing. We try to balance quality and economy, but quality is our first priority. All our meats are brined and roasted in-house, the breads are handmade, our desserts are created from scratch in our Kitchen and many of our veggies come from a family-owned local greenhouse.
Again, we appreciate your patronage and hope you'll stop by again, at least for the wine tasting!
P.S. We sometimes offer specials for locals, so keep an eye on our social media and website during the off-season.

We stopped here after our hike and were hoping to get something to eat and taste wine. The brochure sounded like they might be meals but they are basically a deli of unique sandwiches. Because they didn't have anything without gluten that was substantial after a long hike, we didn't end up eating here. However, we did do some wine tasting. While at Mt. Rushmore we saw these wines and one called "Red A** Rhubarb" and it peaked our interest so we decided to stop here to do a wine tasting. The rhubarb wine was good and not necessarily a dessert wine. We came away with 6 bottles of various wines. There were two other wineries in the area but we didn't have time to stop but at one and this one has been here the longest as far as I could tell.
