Alexis Bailly Vineyard
Ranked #5 of 19 things to do in Hastings
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We have lived near Hastings for almost 10 years and have never visited Alexis Bailly Vineyard until this past Sunday. WOW- we have missed a gem right in our back yard!
We arrived to hear live music outside and everyone sitting around snacking on wine and cheese and having a blast. Some folks even brought their pooches!
We went in for a tasting and loved the small quaint atmosphere...almost too small because there were sooo many people there. The tastings were generous and yummy...they do a great job with their wine!
Once the band took a break the bathrooms became really busy and one of the workers saw the long line so he brought us back to behind the bar to ease the line a bit.. sooo nice! The bathrooms were even decorated in a wine theme.
The gift shop was nice and it had a good variety of items..bought nuts and chocolate for the tasting and it was well worth the $$ tag.
We will be back!

A. Bailly vineyards is small in size but fun to tour. Informative, lovely setting and good wines. Sunday afternoon jazz sessions in the summer are a great way to beat the heat. Lots of shade and music, we bring our own chairs. I would definitely go to visit at that time. Food and wine available for purchase and it's like a picnic.

Both the wines and the customer service were excellent. The tasting room was busy, but the two staff managed it well. They were both personable, friendly, helpful and delightful to chat with. We opted for the full tasting experience--all 12 wines (including the 4 dessert wines) for $8 each. We also stayed to enjoy a glass of Country White and a cheese/meat snack from the gift shop. I can't wait to enjoy the bottle we took home!

My friend surprised me last Sunday with a trip to the Alexis Bailly Vineyard's Jazz in the Vineyard event. Wow!! I'm not a fan of sweet wines and I was very impressed with the taste and quality of their wines (I only tasted their reds). The Sangria is also wonderful and perfect to sip on while listening to music in the great outdoors. We'll be back next Sunday!

Visited the winery on Mother's Day. Place was hopping! Nice amount of wines to try for $5. Reds, Whites and 3 dessert wines. Both Estate wines and wines from grapes brought in from elsewhere.
Some very nice wines. My only complaint would be that there was so many people there you really couldn't talk to the people serving the wine about the wines.Still an overall pleasant experience and worth your time if you are in the area. An easy drive from Minneapolis/St. Paul so give them a try.
