While its true great wines are partly made in the vineyard, it takes talented and dedicated individuals with passion for the art and craft of winemaking to produce unique and expressive wines. At Salem Glen, Tony and Dustin Ebert have been working several years exclusively with the cold hardy grape varieties that grow in the upper Midwest. Due to the high quality wines that are possible with the now available variates, we believe that it is unnecessary to import wine and juice from other warmer regions. Between local quality grapes and dedicated winemaking, outstanding wines that express a regional identity are possible in Minnesota today. Our goal is to make approachable and satisfying wines that capture the fullest potential of the fruit.
