Every year their selection seems to expand. There's something for every palate. They do tastings "flight" style which isn't what I would prefer, but it does force you to get out of your comfort zone a bit, which is great! Pretty grounds and relaxed atmosphere. Just wonderful!

We take visiting guests to Carlos Creek Winery several times during the summer and it is always a great time! The wine list appeals to every taste with new selections added. The stewards are knowledgeable about the wines and pairings. The tasting room and grounds are attractive. The music is varied and entertaining. Only wish there was a greater food... More

We had heard about the winery and decided to check it out. What a great place, beautiful grounds, great female duo playing on the patio area. And the wine, amazing! We'll make it a regular stop this summer.

Great fun for a day touring the winery with family or friends. Try out their wide selection of wines made locally with locally grown grapes. Also a great place to have large parties or wedding receptions. No matter what the occasion is have fun and don't forget to try a glass of wine!!

We taste-tested a flight of red wines. Several of them appealed to us, and we could buy bottles right there. The staff knew some but could have been better trained. The best part of the visit was sitting outside under a gazebo listening to a group from the Twin Cities playing old songs and new. A beautiful setting for listening... More

They have a wine tasting bar and small restaurant. Have never been there when the restaurant was open. Love all their wines.

Hello! I'm glad you enjoyed our winery. We actually transitioned our restaurant two years ago into a deli. It allows us to offer food items 7 days a week, year-round. We will be adding more items to the deli as the summer progresses. I invite you to come back and check it out in another month when we'll also have... More

I'm not a wine drinker and don't care to go to these places but the people I was with wanted to go, so I went. The place was very nice, pretty flowers, etc., but again, not my kind of place.

We went for the tour, but it was closed due to construction. Wine tasting was fun. Friendly ladies serving up great wines. A fun little adventure in the area. Call ahead about tours and music.
