Winery
$$
“Experience award-winning South Dakota wines in a fun and relaxed setting. Free wine tastings with a brewery right next door. Menu items including gluten-free, vegetarian and kids' options. Patio seating with beautiful views of Black Elk Peak. What I love about this place, you can sample the wine for FREE!!! The place is family friendly although it is truly more suited for adults! Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, Red Ass Rhubarb and Gold Digger are my personal favorites. Disclaimer, I tend to favor a sweeter wine. ”
