Visited winery on 8/4/19 and Harry waited on us in the tasting room and was less than friendly to our group. He quickly developed a condescending attitude. I know a fair amount about wine and was treated like I knew nothing. Another customer from another winery was able to recommend a wine that was very good. Would not return.

Went here with a group of friends on a busy Saturday afternoon. It was October so the trees were really gorgeous as they were turning colors. The atmosphere was really fun as the wine tasting bars were inside of what looked to be a barn. The wines were pretty good, but not great. Overall, we had a lot of fun and it was a good experience. It was worth the trip.

We arrived as a group and had an amazing time with our wine tasting. The ladies were very helpful and did a fabulous job. So many to choose from. Music on the hillside was wonderful. The views were great and we will be back again.

I fell in love with the beautiful barn and rural setting of Parley Lake Winery, but the customer service was poor. My group arrived when their computers were down, and we waited a long time before we could start a tasting - they wouldn’t let us begin without paying even though we asked about paying in cash! I understand computer issues but not poor service. (Hey! I’ve been a waitress!) No discounts or freebies were offered either for the trouble. And the only bathrooms are outhouses! The tasting was $12 for three plus a glass. We wandered outdoors and enjoyed live music and the sunny day. There were about 10 sculptures outside I highly recommend seeing while you’re there.

Parley Lake was our second stop on the wine tour of Waconia and we really loved it. The environment and scenery is top notch - note that there is an apple orchard here too with a petting farm so there are kids on the property (not in the winery though). I enjoyed their Marquette, especially since it is MN grown! The only down side is they only have portapotties, but we learned that they are expanding the barn next year to include indoor facilities. I will definitely go back!
