Starting with each clip of the pruner during the long winter on the prairie begins a new season and expectation of a wine from the sweetland of the prairie. A wine to share with family and friends, to bring people together in conversation and laughter. Our labor in the vineyard ends in a experience that can be taken in and shared with others.

The quality of our grapes at harvest is the result of our attention to detail throughout the growing season. From using a trellising system that allows us to use the heat degrees that our prairie region offers, to managing crop production, we produce a fruit that we can be confident is at its’ prime when it is picked. It can then be on to the wine making process where skill, science, and the winemaker’s artistic style, combine to bring you Hinterland Vineyard’s best wines.

At Hinterland, our vineyard and winery are part of a growing, sustainable industry. We are a winery with the ability to adapt and change with the future. From our grandparents who came to this area and settled this land, to our parents, and now our children, we carry on the ability to adapt and change to new surroundings. Perhaps that’s part of the characteristics of the people of this region.

We believe that our grandparents are looking down upon us and smiling. They may have questioned our endeavor in its beginning, but we think they are probably quite proud of us. Just as we are proud to bring you the fine wines of Hinterland Vineyards.

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.
