The Andrzejczak family planted their first acre of grapes on their dream property—an expanse of land by a coulee in Wisconsin, set amid trees, deer, and wild turkeys. This acre of Marquette vines promises to become a vast vineyard that will fuel their business, 65 Vines Winery. But for now, the owners are waiting for the vines to mature.
In the meantime, they have turned to locally grown and regionally sourced grapes—focusing on the area’s hearty hybrids that can survive the cold climes—which they make into a variety of sweet and dry wines. Their wines include Kinni River Red, aged in oak barrels with a hint of cherry, and Tippy Canoe, a fruit white wine with notes of citrus that pairs well with Packers fans' cheese heads.

Northern Vineyards is a shared winery owned by the Minnesota Winegrowers Cooperative, a group of winemakers who own 1- to 15-acre vineyards across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Members grow Frontenac, Prairie Star, and other grape varieties that perform well in the region; since the region has a cold climate and short growing season, grapes grown here must tolerate lower temperatures, ripen early, and be able to knit their own woolen mittens. In the fall, growers lug their mature grapes to the main winery in Stillwater, where award-winning winemaker Robin Partch transforms them into 30 kinds of wine.
The winery’s barrel room hosts wine tastings seven days a week at a glossy, wooden tasting bar. There’s also an outdoor deck that overlooks a historic lift bridge along the St. Croix River. In nice weather, visitors can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with a glass of wine on the deck.
The youngest of nine children, Luna Rossa’s owner and chef, Raffaele Virgillo, grew up at his mother’s side, studying her every move as she cooked in the kitchen of their small cottage in southern Italy. Emigrating to the United States in the 1970s, Virgillo put the culinary skills and magical Italian incantations he learned from his mother to use here in the States. He settled in the Twin Cities, where he cooked his way through four restaurants before opening the original Buona Sera, and eventually, Luna Rossa. There, he works alongside his daughter, Anna, son-in-law, Jesse, and grandson, Vinny, and granddaughter Gigi serving a menu of Italian-inspired cuisine within a rustic eatery near Stillwater’s historic limestone caves.

Owners Steven and Stephanie Weber don't just encourage creativity; they also devote themselves to responsible living, reducing their carbon footprint by recycling and reusing materials.
