Italy comes to Dakota

This fall, we were thrilled to host Mike's cousin, Giovanna, and her family from northern Italy as they visited the Black Hills. Though we harvested nearly all of our grapes earlier in the month, we left a few behind for Giovanna to pick.

A New Look for OldFolsomVineyard.com
In 2010, the year of Old Folsom Vineyard's first harvest, Kelsye designed and hand-coded our very first website (pictured above). We've come a long ways in those past six years--and so has the world wide web--so we are excited to share with you the latest rendition of our site. With profiles of the wine made from OFV grapes, to stories from the prairie and upcoming events, we hope that our new site does a better job of providing the kind of information you find useful and interesting. Should you have any suggestions or encounter any problems with our site, please email us at oldfolsomvineya...
