Aspelund Winery

About

The tasting room has been built on the north side of their home overlooking the gardens. They feature tastings of their fruit wines and bottles of wine for sale. The tasting room has a story of its own. Be sure to ask where the flooring came from and how that peacock came to be roosting in the room. Outside, they provide a park like experience with the lawn, oak trees, flowers and gardens. The view from the “mountain” is gorgeous in any season as you overlook Wanamingo and the Zumbro River Valley. The Rohls are also into making their own cheese, grind their own corn flour, grow their own vegetables including popcorn. They hope to add the cheese to sell at a later date. There is never a dull moment weekends at Aspelund Winery. You will enjoy the sounds of nature and the sounds of history as they plant, shell or grind corn, press fruit, pick elderberries, apples or grapes, and use their stirrup hoes on the weeds.

History

In 2007, Bruce and Dawn Rohl opened Aspelund Peony Gardens. Aspelund and Hader, centered northwest of Wanamingo and northeast of Kenyon, and south of Cannon Falls, the Rohls have built a blooming side business on their 10 acre property. Besides growing and selling peony plants, they have invested in planting 450 elderberry bushes, 150 apple trees, and 80 grape vines.

A longtime wine making enthusiast, Bruce has been honored at the county fair for his wine. It runs in his blood, as they say, his ancestors were vintners in France. Another side hobby of Dawn and Bruce is genealogy, having traced their families back to 1500 and before.
