Carlos Creek Winery has a beautiful spot in the countryside outside of Alexandria. Besides its popular wines, they often have live music performing. During the Grape Stomp festival in the fall, many, many vendors have booths for arts and crafts, jewelry, wood carving, and more. Food vendors are set up also, and of course wine tasting is available. The Grape... More

My uncle got married here recently and the location was beautiful. My husband and I did a wine tasting and they were very delicious and flavorful. The appetizers at the wedding were mushroom cups and meat on a stick in a yummy glaze. The reception room was huge and gorgeous! We really enjoyed.

We've been to Alexandria several times but we've never visited Carlos Creek Winery. We're so glad we did! It was a quiet weekend there and we had the full attention of the staff for our wine tasting. You can choose from 8 different groupings of wine. I chose fruity wines and my husband chose Minnesota specialties. You won't leave there... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed our new self-guided cold-climate wine museum! We opened it in May, and are continuing to add exhibits. It is open whenever our tasting room is open and is always free, so it has made it much easier for people to plan their visits. More

Busy weekend with the beautiful Minnesota fall weather. Deep lines for wine tasting, but moved swiftly.
