Dear MinnScooter, I'm so glad you enjoy our winery - we love repeat visitors! Sundays are great days to visit the winery - relaxed and staff can give lots of personal attention. You are right, at the end of the season, more wines will be sold out then in June when many are released. About the tours - they will... More

Hi Sue, Thanks for the wonderful review! The wagons are one of our favorite activities to offer. The owner of the wagon raises the Norwegian Fjord horses near our winery. He has 25 of them and generally brings a different team each time he gives rides at the winery. We offer horse drawn vineyard tours on Memorial Weekend, over the... More

Thank you for the wonderful review! We too find the winery to be one of the most relaxing places to be and we often spend our time off on the front porch enjoying the scenery and live music with a glass of one of our favorite wines. Please come back and join us! More

In helping travelers identify interesting events like the Grape Stomp to plan stops around, the internet can be very helpful. It does however have a down side if the host shortens the schedule without changing the web site. Such was the case for the wine tasting at the Grape Stomp. Hopefully the venue can overcome technological challenges or just be... More

Hello, I am happy to hear you enjoyed our food vendors and music at this year's Grape Stomp. The wood-fired pizza was also one of my favorites. I am disappointed that you found inaccuracies in our on-line schedule for wine tasting and our actual hours. I will be particularly mindful of that for next year. One change we will be... More
