Greetings and Salutations My name is Dane Nielsen. In 2007 my wife and I were married at the wonderful Beaver Valley Ski Club. No wedding is complete without wine so we came into the Grist Mill Winery to make our wine. Who would have thought that such a simple little thing would send me down this path? Well in less than a year I was working for the wineries previous owners Terry and Judy Smith; wonderful people who took my love for wine and turned it into a fever for making and producing the best wine possible. Fast forward five years and Terry and Judy are ready to retire. So I did what every crazy person would do I bought the store. So here I am 30 years old still very much in love with my amazingly supportive wife, two great little girls (aged 2 ½ and 1 year at the time of writing this), a 50 acre hobby farm and a perfect little business. Needless to say I couldn’t ask for more!
So how do I keep the Grist Mill Winery the best it can be....
Offer only the finest quality juices available.
Give 100% of myself to every customer every time.
Offer a very unique bottling experience in a heritage 1877 grist mill.
Use small town water (no overly processed city water for us).
Offer a 100% taste satisfaction guarantee.
So take a drive to our beautiful Beaver Valley, drop into our store and witness first-hand why so many make their wine with us. You'll like what you see and, even more importantly, you'll LOVE the taste of your finished wine!
