About Leatherwood Vinegary
Leatherwood Vinegary is the finest little vinegary in Minnesota. It just might be the only one. The
Leatherwood Orchards, Leatherwood Herb Gardens, and Leatherwood Vinegary (okay, it's all one place
on 40 acres of beautiful Minnesota soil, just north of the Long Prairie River) work together to produce fine
wine vinegars. Ron and Nancy are the vintner / vinegarist and herbalist, respectively, with many years of experience in growing fruit and herbs and making them into wines and vinegars.
The vinegary is a charming place with faux rock walls, urn filled niches, and the permeating essence of wine and vinegar. Since it is also a licensed facility, it has the requisite stainless steel sinks, tables and
other equipment. Making wine vinegar is an art as well as a science with tasting and testing having equal importance in producing a quality product. It takes time to nurture the trees and vines. Wine ferments over a period of several weeks to several months. Conversion to wine vinegar is a slow natural process of
several months to many years. We don't rush it. When it's ready we bottle it. From the fruit to you!
