Chuck Corliss and his wife Kim founded the North Shore Winery and the Sawtooth Mountain Cider House in Lutsen, Minnesota. The winery offers a variety of red, white, and rosé wines, as well as hard ciders made with a local flair. The winery is open to visitors for tastings, bottles, or a glass of wine. They also host private events.
The idea to build a winery took off when Chuck and Kim were discussing retirement plans and what to do when finished with their “day” jobs. The couple wanted to live in Lutsen so they could ski, mountain bike, sail, and golf full time. Combined with lifelong “research work,” they thought a winery would be a fun new attraction in Lutsen!
Jeremy and Mary Hanson joined the Corliss’ in 2017 as partners.
