Glacial Ridge Winery opened August 2007. We're located on Hwy 23 just 15 minutes North of Willmar between Spicer and New London. There are many lakes and recreational areas in our back yard which together with a visit to our Winery could make for a wonderful weekend away from the city.

The winery is located at the home of Jimmy Appleseed Orchard, which has over 850 apple trees boasting 12 different varieties. When apples are in season, they continue to be offered for sale at the winery along with apple cider and caramel apples.

The winery was originally built as a bait and minnow house. The back room has two different levels to accommodate minnow tanks, with the higher level making it easier to lift buckets to pour minnows into trucks when they backed into the building for a load. Then the building was converted to an apple house for selling fresh apples and frozen apple pies. Fresh apples, pumpkins and other produce continue to be offered for sale during the fall season. Wine Production occurs in our newly renovated Wine Pavilion, which also houses our event center.

We love to have fun at Glacial Ridge Winery and host a variety of special events throughout the year. Some of our post popular include; The Summer Concert Series, The Annual Spring Feast and Grape Stomp and Friday Night Soup Night in the Winter. Be sure to check out our events tab for the latest on our upcoming events.

The winery boasts the uniquely distinctive 'Barrel Room', a walk-in, sit-down, lounge area. The Tasting Room, allows one to sample the specialty wines Glacial Ridge Winery produces on site. A wonderful assortment of wines and specialty gifts surround the walls of the winery to suit a variety of shoppers' tastes and interests.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
