Wine enthusiasts searching for bubbly made fresh in the Mount Rushmore state will soon be in luck.
The first champagne house in South Dakota is coming to Sturgis, courtesy of Belle Joli Winery.
Blasting has started to prepare for construction of the new winery and vineyard that will feature a tasting room with indoor and outdoor seating.
It's owned by Jackson Vineyard proprietors Matthew Jackson, his wife Choi, and Dr. John and Patty Jackson.
Matthew Jackson says that customers will also be able to watch part of the wine-making process through a large window.
It should open by spring.
