The Red Trail Vineyard is named after the historically significant Old Red Trail, one of the first established wagon and cart trails which guided settlers through Dakota Territory. It stretched from Fargo, ND to Glendive, MT, and passed just on the north side of the Vineyard. Through the years, many Native American artifacts have been found near the Vineyard and along the Old Red Trail, some of which are on display in the Tasting Room at Red Trail Vineyard. The Vineyard site is bordered on the west and the south by Buffalo Creek, and is 200 feet above the Maple River Valley. The area is surrounded by trees, some old and some new, and is sloped slightly to the south.
