“making the best dandelion wine there is”
How did that happen? Everyone seems to ask that. Maple River Winery was registered with the Secretary of State in North Dakota on March 19, 2001. Over 10 years ago!!!! Our focus was to utilize North Dakota fruit in making traditional wines in small batches like our ancestors did. Many people have visited our winery with stories about their parents and how they would make wine. After sampling our chokecherry or rhubarb wine, every now and then we will see a tear in their eye...."This is just like my mother used to make it." is a common statement we experience. Our craftmanship and respect for our heritage has earned us numerous recognitions throughout the United States. That is not the end of the story however. North Dakota had a law saying we could MAKE wine, but in order to sell it we needed a $500 license. We talked to our Representative, Bill Pietsch, about introducing a Bill in the next legislative session and we patterned it after the Minnesota farm winery license. It passed easily in both the House and Senate, and the Governor gladly signed it into law in our presence. That picture is hanging up at the winery today in historic Downtown Casselton.
