Decades ago, Native Americans walked a path along the shore of Black Oak Lake and picked wild grapes on their way to nearby villages. Today, Black Oak Vineyard rests less than 100 yards from the lake—the source of the grapes’ early nourishment. But alas, we digress.
Whispering Oaks Winery and Black Oak Vineyard are located in central Minnesota—midway between Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Fargo, North Dakota.
We proudly call the small town of Melrose our home—a village of more than 3,000 inhabitants.
