Your homegrown fine wine distributor and importer serving the state of Minnesota since 1985, The Wine Company is Minnesota born and raised proud to spit so you don’t have to.
While Minnesota Nice might keep us from boasting day in day out, we have a great deal to be proud of in the land of 10,000 Lakes. Minnesota is not only home to the headwaters of the Mighty Mississippi but Wheaties, Aveda, the Juicy Lucy, Scotch Tape, Bisquick, Post It Notes, HMOs, the stapler, the armored car, the Better Business Bureau, the skyway, the shopping mall, the Bundt Pan, the pop-up toaster, Rollerblades, the snowmobile, Spam, rice cakes, and Snickers among countless other candy bars… Minnesota is an innovative hotbed of all sorts!
We hosted the first open heart surgery and the first bone marrow transplant. Minnesota is even the Birthplace of Waterskiing which should not come as a surprise when one in six of us own a boat and Minnesota has 90,000 miles of shoreline –more than California, Florida and Hawaii combined. It is a special place indeed…but did you know that we also gave the world several accomplished wine folk involved in some of the best juice that belongs on your table?
Join us over the coming blog posts where we will highlight but a few of our favorite MN ties to wines worthy of your cellar. So don’t be a goose –it is Duck Duck Gray Duck after all; be nice and learn more about what connections make us Minnesotans so special on the wine front.
