North Folk Winery is located in east central Minnesota, approximately 40 miles North of the Twin Cities. Our award winning wine is well received and poured in a unique and inviting timber-frame tasting room. We are dedicated to providing the best of everything local in one place including the fruit made to produce our wine, the ingredients for our menu, the display of art in the tasting room, and the best of live entertainment.
A Note from the Owners
“Making wine from local fruit has been a hobby and a passion of ours for many years. As our hobby evolved, Mike and I had this crazy idea that we’d open a winery so we could have fun and enjoy our retirement years. Little did we know that we’d be working harder than we’ve ever worked in our lives! But the journey has been fun and we are so grateful to our family and friends who’ve helped us immensely along the way. It has been so rewarding to share not only our wine, but our wine stories with our customers, who constantly affirm our decision to bring a winery to our beloved community in east central Minnesota.“
-Mike and Ann Tessneer
