The wines were exceptional. And I've been to over 35 wineries in the midwest. But what makes a midwest winery a hidden gem for me is the building and the people. The building is knotty pine and all you'd expect in minnesota-little benches outside to sit on and a dog that greets you with an old stuffed toy. The gentlemen... More

This was my third trip to Alexis Bailey and every time I have enjoyed it. They had seven wines on the list, five of which I tried, two I really enjoyed. The grounds are fantastic with several seating areas a couple bocce courts, vines and sculptures. This is a great place to bring a lunch or some cheese and crackers... More

they were Minnesota's first commercial winery which was a good thing for the area but they have kept too many of the first generation grapes that were only OK for wine production in MN..other newer wineries have used more of the newer U of M grapes. with better results. I did love the Chocolate Frontenac desert wine, and really liked... More

We love Hastings and always stop at our favorite winery. The setting is beautiful with a very knowledgeable staff. You can't believe the the wine they produce here in Minnesota. It rivals anything we have had from California. As they say Minnesota is where the grapes go to suffer! Try this place if you love great wine!

My husband and I stopped at this winery late on a Sunday afternoon. (They are open until 5:30). We decided to taste all of their wines. (8 wines for $5 and if you want to try some of the dessert wines they are an additional $1 each.) The staff was very friendly. As they poured our samples they even suggested... More

I have reviewed Alexis Bailly previously, but thought it was a good time to add some additional comments. When I had previously written my review that was my first visit, since then I have visited over a dozen times. There are many reasons and I will try and get to them all. 1, the employees (who are more like family)... More

Wine in MN?? Absolutely a must see. This quaint vineyard has great wines. The wine tasting is reasonably priced and the staff is very helpful. Check it out.

We've visited this winery several times over the last year. It has always been a very pleasurable experience. Today we brought friends from Minneapolis and were quite disappointed. The annoying barking dog inside the building was just the beginning. The staff behind the bar were all new and the pours for the tasting were pitifully small. In the past we've... More

We have been going here for years, and has always been a nice romantic place to go, sometimes with the children. However, more recently, the staff behind the wine bar has taken a left turn. Our romantic little place in the grapes doesn't seem to represent a larger spectrum of visitors anymore, and seems to be a little bit more... More

I have been to many wineries and this is one of my favorites. It really is a hidden gem and wish I have been here before now! The vineyard and property upon arrival is a view in itself. We tried the wine tasting and Mark was really knowledgeable about the wines and made the experience really fun. We got to... More
