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

This is located off 170th street just south of Hastings. The wine is very good. In the summer you can listen to free jazz outside---bring your chairs & snacks---while you enjoy the music and their wine. You can buy a bottle or a glass. Jazz is July & August on Sundays.

I've been to Alexis Bailey many times, yet never remembered to review it. Small winery with a good variety for every taste. The special tasting events with food pairings are a must. The grounds are nice, with outdoor seating all around, a fire place inside for the colder days. I have yet to make it to a summer concert, but... More

We visited AB during their latest pairing event. What a nice surprise! There were 9 different stations with various wines and either cheeses or sweets to accompany them. It would have been great to be outdoors but that didn't lessen the experience. There were some great pairings that made this unexperienced wine drinker consider getting more into wine. They had...

We visited on a sunny Sunday and enjoyed some outdoor music along with our wine tasting. We met some interesting people while we did our tastings outside. They were very busy inside and needed more servers. The gals on the retail part of the store were not helpful and very rude. They need more bathrooms! All in all it was... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
