At Wild Mountain Winery, everything is local, right down to the grapes and the process in which they're grown. Surrounded by the green hillsides of the St. Croix River Valley, Wild Mountain utilizes the methods of Elmer Swenson—a pioneering breeder who revolutionized grape growing in regions plagued by cold, short seasons, and undomesticated snowplows. Having been perfected over the years, those time-tested processes now result in hardy varietals that represent the local climate, soils, and vines. Travelers along the Upper St. Croix Wine Trail can explore Wild Mountain's territorial flavors in a number of ways, including during weekend tastings that come with a souvenir glass.
Good guys don’t always finish last. And neither do the cars that Good Guys Auto Group takes under its wing. Elliot Tuccitto, Aaron Schnagl, and Shane Murray started the company with a firm commitment to honest, dedicated service. With this principal always in mind, the company’s technicians repair mechanical problems—with a special focus on diesel engines—and restore vehicles to original condition with professional cleaning and detailing services. The company also protects cars from rust, weather hazards, and potato-in-the-muffler pranks with rust proofing and undercoating treatments.
