Welcome to the Red Trail Vineyard!

Nestled along the Buffalo Creek on the outskirts of Buffalo, ND our family vineyard takes its name from the rich history of the Old Red Trail, one of the first established trails guiding settlers through Dakota Territory. 

The fertile soils of the Red River Valley and traditional wine making techniques combine to elicit the subtle flavors and aromas of our native hybrid grapes.

Our wines are a perfect compliment to an elegant meal or a casual get together with friends!

For a fun filled day with Great Wine, Food, Music & People we encourage all to plan on attending the 2012 Grape Stomp....You wont be disappointed"

"My husband and I attended the grape stomp and harvest festival this last year, and we had such an amazing time. We have been telling our friends about it and plan on attending again next harvest season.

I plan on bringing more people with us next year. I will definitely "friend" you on Facebook! I will also be going to get me some wine! Yay!"

Amy Pederson - Mayville, ND


"Thanks for having us at your vineyard. Every one had a great time. On Sunday we voted to spend the weekend of your grape stomp in Buffalo. We would like to reserve the spaces at the RV park in Buffalo and some would like  to dry camp at your vineyard.

I would appreciate it if you could let me know who to contact to reserve the campground in Buffalo.

Thanks again,"

John Hilley - Buxton, ND


"My daughter & I attended the harvest/wine stomp this year (1st time for me, 2nd time for her). We had a fantastic time."

Karen Walker - Fargo, ND


"Bunny, Linda and Harley would like to thank you for your hospitality this past weekend. We all truly loved the event, all the fine food,  wine, tours and or course the grape stomp. Bunny and I are happy we could have Harley to accompany us and that he was able to enjoy it every bit as much as we did.

He stopped by today and is anxious to re-visit next year.

The music and entertainment was totally fantastic.

We are wishing you a great grape season. I am hiding the last bottle for a special occasion. Haven't decided if I will share or not.

Thanks again,"

Linda Lind - Rush City, MN
