"Quality is not an act.  It is a habit."  - Aristotle


River Bend certainly has a habit for producing award-winning wines.  In fact, in only 7 years of competition we have received more than 50 gold and silver medals. We have also been voted "#1 Best Winemaker" in the Chippewa Valley 7 years in a row!    

Here are some of the recent top awards our most popular wines have achieved...

River Bend is such a warm and welcoming place! Their wine simply speaks for itself, and they have such kind employees! A must stop if you are in the area! From the inexperienced wine drinker, to the connoisseur, there is a great atmosphere with wonderful people to enjoy it with.

The more I travel round and visit places in this big world, the more I realize just how super RBV is. I always feel welcome and appreciated there.

River Bend Winery is a hidden gem in Chippewa Falls. My fiancée and I stumbled upon this winery a few years ago and have been enjoying their wines ever since. It is one of the places we make sure to take friends and family to when they visit.

We were passing thru the area 8/1/15 on motorcycle and came across the signs for the winery. We arrived at 4:55pm not knowing they closed at 5pm. The staff were very nice and accommodating and told us they would still offer us a wine tasting. We felt bad knowing they probably wanted to close up but they insisted. The only thing I can say is WOW! Fantastic wines!... Excellent job River Bend Winery!

This is one of my favorite local visits! They have a great staff, awesome selection of homemade wines to taste and a lovely patio to enjoy the weather!

We happened on this vineyard several years ago and have never looked back. Most of the wine I drink comes from this winery. The owner and staff are very friendly and outgoing. They always make you feel like friends stopping in for a visit

My wife and I stopped in for a wine tasting Oct 2015 and had a great experience. The tasting facility was great, our wine server was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. And then the wine, we’ve tasted wine all over Wisconsin and California and this was some of the best stuff. Love the Marquette (red), the sparkling wines were great and even some of the sweeter wines were well balanced and not overdone. The grounds were beautiful, we just had a great experience, we will be back. If your in the area, its definitely worth a stop!

LOVE the wine - especially the fact there are several good semi-dry ones! Also love the fact they grow their own grapes and have the vineyard right outside. What a great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend this winery to anyone looking for good wine and a fun atmosphere!
