"The Art of Minnesota Winemaking"

By Sentinel Tribune staff

Sentinel Tribune of Westbrook, Minnesota

Sip history in the making and discover Minnesota's inventiveness with cold-hardy grapes, created to survive the freezing Minnesota temperatures. Learn about the history of early wine-making ventures in our area and tour three unique wineries.

First we will travel to downtown Redwood Falls and experience a Fall Fest and grape stomp with Fieldstone Vineyards, stop along the highway in Spicer at Glacial Ridge Winery for the crisp wine and apples, and finish our tour at Morgan Creek Vineyards in New Ulm for a bright underground wine experience.

"I never knew grapes in Minnesota could produce appealing sipping wine," says Postcards Producer Andrea Singleton. "Our state's ability to grow fruit in the freezing winter temperatures amazes me and the variety of different wineries in our area is astounding."

This new episode of Postcards airs on Sunday, January 6 at 7:00 p.m., with rebroadcasts on Monday at 1:30 p.m. and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. on Pioneer.

The twenty local productions of Postcards at Pioneer Public Television capture the stories about Minnesota art, history and cultural heritage, with funding provided by the Minnesota

Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
