Description: Experience our award-winning wines in a fun and relaxed setting in the heart of the Black Hills. Find us three miles northwest of Hill City on Highway 385, just a few miles from Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Crazy Horse Memorial. We’re Hill City’s only working winery and Sandi Vojta, our fifth generation winemaker, handcrafts each wine, often using old family recipes, just a few steps from our Tasting Room. Start your Prairie Berry Winery experience with a free wine tasting of up to five of our award-winning wines, including our Anna Pesä handcrafted traditional European wines, at our Tasting Bars. We produce a variety of wines in styles for every palate – from crisp, dry wines and robust, oak-aged reds to sweet, fruity varieties. Our Kitchen offers housemade menu items including gluten-free, vegetarian and kids’ options. Menu selections pair perfectly with our wines, vary with the season and many of our ingredients are sourced locally. Enjoy a meal on our patio with our beautiful views of Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak). Our brewery, Miner Brewing Company, is located next door.

I love love love this place! It was like a food oasis in South Dakota where all the restaurants served either processed food or steak. My husband and I sampled their wine (you get 5 samples for free), but the food was outstanding. My husband had their opened avocado sandwich, and borscht soup. I gad the mixed greens with bacon, and avocado. My son had their tomato basil soup, and my daughter had the child sized cheese pizza. We all shared a generous portion go blueberry cheesecake. The ambiance of the winery was very California-ish, and the patio seating was pleasant. The staff were very nice and helpful. We wanted to cone back the second day, but we're too far away to backtrack. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

The Red A** Rhubarb wine billboard caught my eye which made us stop. You have the option to choose 5 generous tastings for free. We were pleasantly surprised that the fruit wines were not so sweet (we prefer dry wine). The lady that did our wine pours was new but very pleasant and professional.

We stopped here on our way back to Custer from Mount Rushmore/Rapid City. I haven't had fruit wines for many years. I have always found them too sweet. However, the wines here at Prairie Berry were quite tasty. I do not know much about fruit wines, but I can say I enjoyed them all. Too bad they don't ship to Nevada, as we're not sure if we'll ever pass this way again. They are worth a visit should you find yourself in the area.

The food was very good, but the service wasn't. The lady that placed our order seemed annoyed that we were there. We are a happy go lucky family, but couldn't overlook the way we were treated as this establishment. If this were my restaurant I would look in to this a bit because the ambiance and the food were good, but we didn't go back because of the service.

We stopped to taste the rhubarb wine and stayed for lunch. We just had to buy some bottles of their wine due to the names -- 3Rednecks, Phat Hogg, Pink Slip. But, many were not bad! As California wine snobs, we found a couple dry reds that we liked!

Lunch was a nice change from burgers. I had the soup and salad combo and my husband had half a corned beef grilled sandwich with soup.

Was not expecting such a nice winery in South Dakota!
