Wine Cellar

Over 1200 Bottles of Wine

The Strand Waterfront Dining & Wine Bar underwent a complete restoration in December of 2018. As the highlight of the restoration, the Strand added a 16-bottle wine dispensing station as well as a 1200- bottle enclosed temperature-controlled wine cellar. The new wine cellar is made of glass walls with a birch bark backdrop. The birch bark is a tribute to the historic “birch dining room” that once graced the presence of Lutsen Resort. The Strand Waterfront Dining Room now carries nearly 200 different bottles of wine, including 20 wines from the Wine Spectator Top 100 list.
