“Great place to visit-wonderful local wine.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Lovely atmosphere, amazing wines (I like the "Hotdish Red"), great staff. Worth the visit. Other interesting things in the gift shop, surprising crystalline pottery, and the food I had was yummy. I think they do weddings and events like that as well.

Dear Homerthecat,
Thank you so much for the very positive revue - we are honored. Josh Pehrson, our resident ceramic artist, has a studio on our property and I agree, his work is amazing! I will share your comments with him - he'll be so pleased.

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!

“A short jaunt from town!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

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.

“It's great to be MN nice”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

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.
