ABOUT
DANISH COUNTRYSIDE VINES & WINES

 

HOW WE GOT HERE

Danish Countryside Winery was unofficially started on Christmas Day 2001, when Andy Petersen gave his dad a wine making kit. Allan, being the agrarian he is, took to it immediately creating wines in his basement with some early successes. Following these events, in 2003, the first vines were planted and 3.5 acres of grapes grew in five years to fruit bearing maturity. During these events, an idea was conceived and accomplished: restoring a one hundred year old barn on the Petersen farm that had been built in 1913. Work started in 2003 and was finished in 2006. The winery became operational by Allan and wife, Carol,  in May of that year.

Since then we have grown from a far-fetched idea to a thriving business. In January of 2016, the ownership changed hands.  Son-in-law, Loren Christensen and daughter, Jennifer Christensen became owners of the business. Loren continues the tradition of vintner managing the vineyard and making the 20 different kinds of wine for all to enjoy.  We are grateful to our customers for the support they have faithfully given us over these years, and we will continue to strive toward the best products, events, and services in the years to come.
