The very first license for a bonded winery in North Dakota was granted to the Pointe of View Winery by the BATF on April 17, 2002. This marked the very first time that all 50 American states have had at least one bonded winery. Operating their winery from a yellow, four-car garage, Jeff and Diana Peterson and Ken and Cindy Eggleston have enjoyed making wine together for the past 15 years for consumption by family and friends. Now they’ve decided to share their enthusiasm. In April, 2003, a legal amendment was signed by Governor Hoeven to promote agriculture and economic development. This allows for the establishment of commercial wineries and provides growers with an alternative cash crop. We shall see what the future holds for North Dakota and the Pointe of View Winery. As we write, there is another potential winery in the works. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)
