The Pointe of View Winery is a winery located in the north-central part of North Dakota, United States half a mile south of Burlington, in the Minot area. Licensed in April 2002,[1] it was the first federally licensed and bonded winery in North Dakota, the last state of the United States to have a federally licensed winery, marking the first time when there was at least one federally licensed and bonded winery in all fifty states.[2][3][4][5]

History[edit]

The owners of the winery (the Petersons and the Egglestons) experimented for many years making wines for their own consumption.[2]

Their rhubarb wine (no vintage) has received a bronze medal in the 2006 American Wine Society Commercial Wine Competition.[6]

Wines[edit]

Although North Dakota is often thought of as a climate that can not produce grapes, there are a number of vineyards in the state. In addition to grapes, the winery also uses a wide variety of other fruits for their wines which include Grape, Rhubarb, Cherry, Apple, Elderberry, Blackcurrant, Plum, Chokecherry, Strawberry, and Juneberry.
