Eldon Nygaard - Master Vintner


Valiant Vineyards


Eldon Nygaard wrote South Dakota's Farm Winery Act in 1996. Together with his wife, Sherry, son, Leif, and daughter, Jeanette, he also started the first winery in South Dakota by establishing Valiant Vineyards, South Dakota Bonded Winery Number One.

Valiant Vineyard's fermentations coupled with Still 173’s distillations have created both vodka and rum batches.
