DescriptionTerroir can be defined as the mystical melding of light, water, soil, air and the human touch. It is a definition that is often used by vintners. The simple fact is, you must have a world class grapevine to produce a world class grape or wine. When it comes to grapes it is their source, the land, which matters most. In the Midwest, there are precious few places like our vineyards located in the Crow River Wine region. The Crow River watershed was defined by the Des Moines Glacier 15,000 years ago during a major climate warming. The deposits of glacial till and gravel left the Crow River Region covered with rolling hills and wet lands on the edge of the great American prairie. Our stony clay slopes cover deep glacial gravel till, giving the vines a well drained environment which we irrigate with mineral rich well water, pumped from the Jordan aquifer 200 feet below. The Crow River region and its drop in elevation offers a slightly wetter and milder climate than the prairie that surrounds it. This fact and our rolling hills offer moderation, be it ever so slight, which postpones our frost by a precious few days, offers a few inches more rain a year, and tempers the dominant Northwest wind. This tipping point in the Crow River Winery microclimate allows our University of Minnesota hybrid viticulture to survive our brutal winter temperatures. My family and I have made it our life's work to maintain these special places on our farm and to nurture these special regional vines. We have the knowledge and respect for nature and we are committed to the hard work, expense, and patience to steward the land and vines, and to coax the wine to the bottle. We are convinced that when the wine is ready you will taste the difference. Ultimately, the wine's distinct personality will reflect its source with that distinctive Crow River Winery Terroir.
