North Dakota WineriesOn April 17, 2002 the Pointe of View Winery (right) became the first federally bonded winery in North Dakota, the last state in the union to have one.

A few years later, Maple River Winery doubled the number of wineries in the state, with promise of more to come.

Today there are more than a dozen commercial wineries operating in North Dakota

A majority of these specialize in wines made from such fruits as apples, strawberries, rhubarb, and chokecherries (North Dakota's official native fruit) along with cold-resistant grape varieties now the subject of valiant pioneering experiments in the cold prairie.

White wine grapes such as Prairie Star, Louise Swenson and LaCresent have shown much promise along with reds produced from hardy Marquette and Frontenac Gris grapes.

Wine in North Dakota? You betcha...
