The winery

The start of River Bend

Al & Donna began their journey in 2009 when they opened River Bend Vineyard & Winery.  With its continued success, they decided to ­­utilize their talents and open a distillery following the same philosophy that has worked so well in the winery.

The Distillery

New adventure, same mission

Excited by the new challenge, Al & Donna set out to produce spirits.  Their mission remains the same - to make the highest quality product featuring locally sourced crops.
