About North Folk Winery
Mike and Ann have been hobby winemakers for many years and in 2008 decided to take their hobby to the next level. Mike says the winery is “a hobby gone wild.” Not coincidentally, a parcel of land adjacent to their homestead was put on the market in 2008 which is now the site of North Folk Winery.
Timber frame construction of the winery was an easy choice as Mike and Ann have constructed three other timber frame buildings. The timbers were cut at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais under the direction of master timber-framer, Peter Henrikson, with the help of 32 volunteers. The structure was erected on site in 2011 and the tasting room opened in 2012. Visit the Winery Timeline to learn more about the history of North Folk Winery.
The Best of Everything Local in One Place
The wine produced at North Folk Winery is made in small batches from locally grown fruit whenever possible. Mike and Ann value sustainable living and promote local businesses at every opportunity. “The Best of Everything Local” truly describes what the winery is all about, including the fruit made to produce the wine, the ingredients used in the preparation of food, the display of art in the tasting room, and the best of live and local entertainment.
The relaxing atmosphere of the tasting room and beautiful surrounding flower gardens, self-guided fruit garden, and vineyard make a perfect destination for socializing with friends or impressing a special someone in your life.Visiting North Folk Winery is an experience; a sense of community in a warm and inviting environment.
Special events are scheduled at the winery throughout the year including Gourmet Pizza Night, Soup ‘N Sip, Forks ‘n Corks, Painting & Pinot, Girls Night Out, the annual Concert Series, and live entertainment every Friday night.
