Great local wine. I love Hotdish Red. They have cheese plates for sale. Great place to see, drink and enjoy the simply things.

Dear Elise, You're in great company with your love of Hot Dish Red - it's has been our best-selling wine since 2008 when we introduced it. We have added to our food offerings and now have a Panini and Pizza grill that is open weekends from Memorial Weekend - Labor Day. More

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. More

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... More

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... More

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... More

A nice winery located just a few miles north of Alexandria and the Arrowwood Resort. The wine tasting area is nicely decorated and you can enjoy your purchases with the indoor seating, when the weather outside does not cooperate. They also offer a selection of gift items available for purchase. The outdoor seating is very nice and live music is... More

I am a flight attendant so I travel a quite a bit and whenever I tell someone that we have an awesome winery in my hometown of Alexandria, Minnesota, I hear "What? A winery in Minnesota?"

Love this place. Small town friendly service with big city taste.The scenery is gorgeous, staff is fun and friendly and most importantly, the wine is delicious (my favorite is the Hot Dish Red). I celebrated my bridal shower here and the service was just as outstanding as it always is when my husband and I stop by. Whether you are... More
