Matt Scott, General Manager of Winemaking and Viticulture

Matt has been a winemaker and viticulturist for more than 15 years, with experience working in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Oregon. He holds Chemistry and Biology degrees from the University of Minnesota, as well as advanced studies in Behavioral Ecology.  His lifelong love of wine took him away from a University research lab and into the winery and vineyard. He is active in his community and the Minnesota wine industry, and works as a volunteer for many organizations. Matt has held various board positions on the Minnesota Grape Growers Association, Minnesota Wine Country at the State Fair, The Taste of Stillwater and Rock the Vine music festival. He also developed the first wine trail in Minnesota. Matt’s winemaking skills have garnered him many awards with his wines achieving Double Gold, Gold and Silver in competitions across the country such as the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, the Indy International Wine Competition, the International Eastern Wine Competition and the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition. His 2015 La Crescent earned Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition and recently he earned Best of Show for his 2016 Marquette at the International Cold Climate Wine Competition.

Thank you for visiting 7 Vines:

In these times of uncertainty, we are extending our thoughts to all of you. This is truly an incredible moment for our world.

Due to the unprecedented Covid-19 virus and the action taken by the State of Minnesota and Governor Tim Walz, our wine bar will be closed until health officials deem it is safe to continue operations. We will keep you posted on any details when we know more. We welcome you to follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for updates.

Our wines are now available for purchase online. Pick up at the winery along with shipping directly to your home or office, is an option. Thank you for supporting local businesses. We are always so humbled by your loyalty, support, and patronage.

Warmly,
Your Friends at 7 Vines Vineyard and Winery
