At Naked Winery® we focus on removing the pecksniffery from the wine. We believe you should drink what you like, not what others say is good. Savor our wines from a tin cup by a romantic campfire or imbibe them in a wild affair. Get uncorked ™ and enjoy what life unexpectedly brings you. Cheers!
Where do our wines come from?
The grapes for our red varietals (Syrah, Cabernet, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Merlot) are orgasmically grown in the hot and dry Apple Gate and Columbia Valley regions of Oregon and Washington respectively. While our other varietals (Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Muscat and Riesling) benefit from the cool pacific marine layers of the Willamette and Illinois Valley’s to produce subtle and complex wines. The vines in Washington’s Columbia Valley struggle with just enough drip irrigated water to produce exceptional fruit for our big bold Chardonnays.
Our family has been making South Dakota wines for five generations. We currently offer more than 15 grape, fruit and honey wines to taste and purchase.
We offer complimentary wine tasting, shopping and a fabulous lunch and other fare from Prairie Berry’s Kitchen!
Our Generation5 Wine Club has no membership fee and plenty of perks.
