Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery

Chankaska Creek Ranch & Winery

Kasota, MN

7,500 Square Feet

Located on a historic farm site in Kasota, Minnesota on the bluff overlooking the Minnesota River, is Chankaska Creek Ranch and Winery. The new two-story, 7,500 square foot winery and tasting room is positioned on the summit of a hill surrounded by the forest, farm site and the meandering Chankaska Creek. The location also features historic farm structures renovated for use as event facilities and storage.

Master plans for the fifteen acres include a ten acre vineyard, trail system, courts, amphitheater and indoor/outdoor event spaces. Multiple paths and bridges over the creek create scenic connections to various outdoor venues, while providing a unique identity to each space.

The winery houses the production area and a tasting room with retail store for the public. In the production area, there are wine presses, fermentation tanks, “clean” room and lab facilities and the Cooperage–an underground barrel storage area. The upper level sits above the production floor. It offers on and off sale wine and the tasting bar as well as other retail opportunities. It is adjacent to the large roof deck, green roof and terraces on the side of the winery. The kitchen features a tile mosaic, wood fired pizza oven.

The winery offers tours, wine tasting, special events, live entertainment and six private event venues. The Winery remains true to its Minnesota setting, while simultaneously transporting visitors into the spirit of classic wine country.
