“MN wine? Tastes GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Pres. Obama stopped in the village of Cannon Falls, MN this summer to say "Hi!" shake some hands, have his photo taken, and so on, but he didn't get a chance to sample the noble wines produced at Cannon River Winery - http://cannonriverwinery.com/ Too bad! I just hope his staff bought a case or two to take on the bus! My favorite is a dry white wine, "St. Pepin" made exclusively from the grape of the same name. The grape is winter hardy for Minnesota - take that California! It was developed by the University of MN. This is a white that can compete with anything from any where in the world - dry, fruity with a body that can really enhance chicken, pork or even lamb. It's about $14 or $15 a bottle at the winery http://cannonriverwinery.com/ They have a nice selection of local grapes that they turn into some very good French or California style wines. AND ... often on weekends there is live music in the tasting room! This is a great place to spend an hour or two on a Sunday afternoon - about 40 miles south of the Twin Cities, right on US Hiway 52.

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

Cute little shop and they had some very good wines. We bought 4 bottles, and could have easily bought 2 or 3 more, they were that good.

“Great Gifts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

If you are looking for wine racks, this is the place to go.They have fun and different gifts
that are reasonable. My husband and I did the wine tasting, each had the 3 flights that was
a little too much, We think the lady doing the serving was a little pushy. We did not buy any
wine, but do plan on going back there.

“Great Tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We visited the winery and did a tasting which was fun beacuse you got to sample all of the wines that they had. It was also nice to hear live music being played throughout our visit. It was a big space for plenty of people and had lots of fun decorations and things to buy.

“Amazing service - great wines - lots of laughs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

Our group of 20 women spent a fabulous afternoon at the Cannon River Winery. The staff had a special area set up for us and presented a lovely wine tasting experience. They were all so friendly and fun and really made us feel welcome. The wines were lovely, the building is quite large and beautiful, and the staff was the BEST.
