Ten Spoon Vineyard and Winery - Missoula
Fine wine made in Montana, where there are cougars and grizzlies and howling blizzards? Is that possible? Is it also possible that these people have been drinking?
Yes, we certainly have. Planting, pruning, fermenting, aging, blending, tasting, and we finally have it right. We hope you'll agree. Currently we do not have a tasting room. However, if you would like to set up an appointment with the winemaker, for a time that works for you both, he'd be happy to give you a tasting.
The varietals we grow are: Maréchal Foche, Frontenac, Leon Millot, St. Croix and table grape Swenson Red (reds) and St. Pepin and LaCrosse (whites). From our harvestan all-time high of 14 tons in October, 2008 comes Ranger Rider, Farm Dog and St. Pepin (formerly Fat Cat). Ten Spoon also purchases grapes and fruit from family farms. We produce Pinot Noir from the Cattrall Brothers's small, hilltop vineyard in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. A sumptuous blend of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel grapes makes our Prairie Thunder, from grapes grown at Charlie Barra's Redwood Valley Vineyard in Mendocino County, Calif. Lise Rousseau and Al Silva grow superb organic Lambert cherries at their meticulous Fat Robin Orchard and Farm on Finley Point beside Flathead Lake in Montana, and that's the secret of our Flathead Cherry Dry.
Lavender is grown on a 700 foot expanse flanking both sides of the driveway that leads to the Ten Spoon Vineyard and Winery. There are 1500 mature Lavendin x intermedia 'Grosso' plants. The crop is ready for harvest in late July. On the last Wednesday of every July, we have a lavender u-pick and wine tasting.

4175 Rattlesnake Drive
Three miles up Rattlesnake Creek from Missoula, Montana, sits a yellow, barn-like structure in a pasture beside a field of grapevines. Really. A true Montana vineyard and winery.
