Great place to spend an afternoon with some wine and friends! They also have wine by the glass or buy a bottle, great gifts to buys and if you are hungry some good sandwiches too! Great live music too! Been there many times!

The winery is a great place to visit. Lovely drive, just a short distance from down town Alexandria. They are very gracious when you visit, and the main plus is being able to taste their wonderful varieties of wine, at a very reasonable cost. They have a lovely area of gifts available for sale. If you happen to be in the area for the Grape Stomp in the fall it's well worth the visit. Many food and craft vendors, nicely laid out, and of course the ever present wine booth!

Hi Just Me!
I'm glad you were able to experience the Grape Stomp. It's a pretty daunting event to put together and we are so pleased to hear that our visitors enjoy it. When you experience the festival from the working side, you always wonder how it feels to our visitors. I hope you are able to visit us again sometime - we are open 361 days a year with free tours every day.

The wine is average but the ambiance is fantastic in addition to the new grill which has great light pizzas with very healthy options.

It's a great little operations to make some minnesota wines. There are much better wines here than other places that we've toured. Some of the tour was a bit dull - as we're looking at the fermentation tanks. Service at the tasting was excellent.

Our family stopped here last Saturday evening to go on the complimentary tour and taste a couple wines. None of us had ever been to a winery before, but it was an absolute blast! The tour was very short (10-15 minutes), but very informative and neat. The wine tasting was my highlight. For $6/person you were able to taste five different wines. They also had live music and all of the employees were VERY nice and helpful. If you are in the area, you need to stop in!
