MN-UN: How would you describe how you got your start in the business?
PPV: The winery became available for purchase in 2014; we came and checked it out and fell in love! It has been a wild ride but it’s a fun new adventure!

MN-UN: Tell us about a unique wine or cider related product you have at Painted Prairie?
PPV: Next summer we are excited to showcase our new Apple wine and Apple cider! The apples came from a local orchard and we are excited how everything is coming together.
