Pleasantly surprised to see that many people out on a Thursday evening. We also got to watch the netting being taken off the grapevines. Pleasant evening to sit on the patio and celebrate a family birthday. Thanks~

This was our 2nd trip to Hinterland Winery. We used our Harvest Host membership to camp there both times and love this place! The owners are so gracious and the restaurant staff is amazing! The new fall menu is great! We will be going back regularly.

This was a great experience! The vineyard was beautiful! We got to see them use the picking machine which was really interesting. The owners were very friendly and came to greet us after we got set up. We ate on the patio at the cute little restaurant, had a delicious meal with wine, and bought a bottle for the road. Our spot was along the edge of the parking area so we stepped out right onto lush grass. It was a great experience for us.

We made patio reservations but the temperature and humidity soured into the 90's, we were wilting, Hinterland's allowed us to be seated inside. This is casual dining. We felt at home in short-sleeved shirts, shorts, and sandals. The beef burgers satisfied the grandkids with us. The Salmon and Portabella burger were tasty and met our expectations for flavor and portion size. The chocolate cake got high remarks, and the ice cream cinnamon dish got top marks from our grandson. Okay, a bit on the expensive side, but reasonable.

I wish we could have been seated inside because the wind was quite strong. I understand that it was not due to the owners but rather their Governor's stupidity but it did affect the experience. Also, there was a little bit of confusion on directions for someone not local. Maybe signage for parking for restaurant, who to see about Harvest Hosts, whether you seat yourself or wait for a hostess, etc. Also, a bit funky not having a hostess station upon entry.

Wonderful farm, restaurant and Vineyard! The wine was tasty, and the service excellent. I wonder. If you’re headed out exploring western Minnesota. On that note, if that’s your aim, to explore, I highly recommend driving north up to Willmar and along the Glacial Ridge Trail scenic byway to Alexandria. Beautiful hills & valleys carved out by the glaciers! Makes for amazing fall color viewing in the the middle of October

Service was great. Very friendly people. The food was not at all bad, but it wasn't something I have to come back to. I suggest stepping up the food a bit. The food is what will make people come back. The wine and full bar are an added bonus. Paper plates and plastic silverware are not something I associate with a winery.
