Make a SimplyGrand grape escape

​See ya later Sonoma. Maybe next time Napa Valley.

No need to travel across the country when you can pick great grapes and taste grand wines right here in Greater Grand Forks…at the popular Grape Mill Vineyard and Winery!

Overlooking the banks of our beautiful Red Lake River, Grape Mill’s cold hardy vines produce red, white and blush varieties with a unique, palate-pleasing flavor specific to this region. The Halversons – Russ, Gail and Matt – planted their first 200 grape vines back in 2006. Today, the vineyard has well over 2,000 vines including the varieties Marquette, La Crescent, Frontenac Gris, Frontenac Blanc and Brianna. Bottles of Grape Mill wine were even featured in Super Bowl LII celebrity gift baskets.

Grape Mill opens for the season on Friday, May 25.

Hours of operation are 12 to 6 PM on Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 PM. They are located at 18696 430thAvenue SW in East Grand Forks, MN. For more information or to schedule a tour, go to or call 218-499-9463. Additional details about #SimplyGrand vino and brews can be found in this video!
