We visited River Bend with two other couples. The facility is modern yet homey. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The wines were excellent! We'll be back next year! (Maybe sooner )

This winery and distillery is not on a major avenue, BUT is worth the drive (very near the Chippewa river). Their spirits and wines are worth the tasting and take time to relax on the patio with a bottle of their vino.

My husband and I stopped here and were very impressed with the beautiful facility along with great wine and spirits. There is a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard. We will definitely be going back!

We went for the wine and fell in love with the distillery. While I am not of fan of the wine, I am a super fan of the spirits. My only recommendation would be to additional options for outdoor seating.

Friendly staff and beautiful location. Came here with a couple of friends and was able to taste a variety of wines. It's a little off the beaten path, but close enough to the local town that it's just a few minutes drive.

My husband and I took a few days to tour west-central Wisconsin wineries and River Bend was our favorite! The facility itself is beautiful and we liked the wine because they have selections that aren't nearly as sweet as many other vineyards. We also enjoyed the distillery side and bought a bottle of their craft gin after having the host... More

Love their wines, the staff was very friendly, the distillery was also good. Very relaxing place to hang out with a nice glass of wine or cocktail-you can bring in your own food to eat as you sit and enjoy the view. Can't wait to go back.

We were disappointed with our visit. A long way to go for such a small winery. More expensive than what I was willing to spend.

We come to Chippewa Falls each fall to visit the wineries. River Bend is one of my favorites. There is such a great selection of wines and the facility is gorgeous! The distillery that was added this year is a fun touch. We stopped on a day with live music by Matt Wahl and enjoyed most of the afternoon here.
