My uncle got married here recently and the location was beautiful. My husband and I did a wine tasting and they were very delicious and flavorful. The appetizers at the wedding were mushroom cups and meat on a stick in a yummy glaze. The reception room was huge and gorgeous! We really enjoyed.

It was 2 of us. We each chose a different wine flight. The nice thing was that we were allowed to share the flights. We were able to try both flights. The improvements we would make are... 1. Slow down when describing the wines. 2. Lower the inside music or not at all. The people sampling and drinking wine were... More

We've been to Alexandria several times but we've never visited Carlos Creek Winery. We're so glad we did! It was a quiet weekend there and we had the full attention of the staff for our wine tasting. You can choose from 8 different groupings of wine. I chose fruity wines and my husband chose Minnesota specialties. You won't leave there... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed our new self-guided cold-climate wine museum! We opened it in May, and are continuing to add exhibits. It is open whenever our tasting room is open and is always free, so it has made it much easier for people to plan their visits. More

Busy weekend with the beautiful Minnesota fall weather. Deep lines for wine tasting, but moved swiftly.

This place was great before the renovation and now it is amazing. Also a great place to have a wedding or event!

Very fun afternoon. All events seemed well organized. Lots of different booths if you wanted to buy things, good variety of merchandise. Many different things going on so basically there was something for everyone. The downside to the whole event was trying to get out of the parking lot. Not well organized at all. It took us over an hour... More

Hi Lorri, I'm so glad you enjoyed the festival. We understand the waits can be long to exit parking on Saturday of the festival. The primary issue is 5000 cars exiting onto a single County road where we must yield to through traffic just takes time. Our crew of 30 parking attendants (Sheriff's deputies, Sheriff's Posse, Private Security & Law... More
