Property History

The location of Three Oak Vineyards and Winery is a very historic and memorable place for many in the Albert Lea, MN area. Dating back over 100 years, the location is the site of historic Wedge Nursery. Founded by the Wedge family, the nursery was one of the largest in the Midwest. Wedge Nursery was famous for its beautiful plants, shrubbery, trees, and flowers that were sold all over the world. The nursery was also a pioneer and leader in grafting and propagating world famous lilac varieties that were exclusive to Wedge Nursery.

The historical buildings at the location date back to the 1920’s. An existing portion of the building  was part of a much larger building constructed in 1919. This building was then damaged by fire in 1933. After the fire, the current configuration consisting of the retail building, root room, and propagation building came into being and is still present today. The current shop building on the property was constructed almost 50 years ago in 1964.

A new chapter in this historical property will become Three Oak Vineyards and Winery. The furniture shop for Rustic Winery LLC will also be located on the property. Three Oak Vineyards and Winery will keep the historical aspects of this unique property in all design and reconstruction phases. Our goal will be to keep as many historical features as possible when building the property into a special wine destination. When visiting Three Oak Vineyards and Winery, the history will be visible in the old walls, beams, and structures. Historical photos of the property will take you back in time, alongside scenic overlooks of the vineyards that mark a new chapter in the history of this property. Three Oak Vineyards and Winery will blend an historical past with an exciting future to achieve to a wine destination unlike any other.
