Schadé Vineyard & Winery

Schadé Vineyard & Winery


Our love for wine making grew out of our experience in touring the beautiful vineyards in the Napa Valley of California. We want to extend the experience to people in this area, but with the added twist of the South Dakota landscape. Our goal is to create a relaxed environment in which to taste the wines, have an opportunity to learn about the wine making process, and to tour a producing vineyard. We produce a wine that is made from South Dakota grown fruits and vegetables.

The first planting of vines was started in 1999 with Valiant and Frontenac grapes. Additional Frontenac, St Croix, Concord, and Kay Gray grapes have been planted, bringing our vineyard to over 1,000 producing vines. Schadé Vineyard buys additional grapes and other fruits from area growers, all within 200 miles of the winery.

Wine production in 2001 was over 300 cases, in 2008 wine production reached 4,000 cases.
