“It more than great wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The whole atmosphere is festive and fun. We did a tasting of 9 wines on a Friday evening. The person pouring knew the characteristics of each wine. After the tasting we purchase 2 of our favorites and ordered brick oven baked food. The artichoke one is the best, but the pizzas are excellent as well. As we were eating a band set up and began to play. There is lots of outdoor seating and the large fire held back the cool of the evening. If you are within 100 miles of this place you must go. The music is on Friday evenings through the end of October.

“An enjoyable evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had travelled over from the UK to visit friends in MN. Knowing we enjoyed wine, Morgan Creek was on the list of places to visit.

We had the best of times, we tasted 5 wines, if I remember correctly and enjoyed the company of the guy running the show. He was superb, taking the time to talk through the characteristics of each wine, comparing and contrasting to previously tasted wines, while giving us an overview of MN wine production, volumes and methods.

We found the surroundings relaxed and very comfortable. Some of our party were new to wine, but I know they felt entirely part of the evening.

All in all, somewhere nice to take friends and partners.

“Wonderful unique wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went to New Ulm for the weekend. Decided to check out the local brewery and Morgan Creek. Did not know the owner of the Winery was the brother to the owner of the brewery. Just an interesting side note. So it runs in the family to make a quality beverage for everyone to enjoy!!!!! They had wines made with grapes I have never tasted before, very unique and very fine wine. I have been to winery's in Sonoma Valley, Mendoza, Argentina... tasted beer in Ireland and a Irish whiskey mill. This was just as fun and nice as those places we have seen. Not sure why the one bad review on this site for the Winery???? We enjoyed it, bought 6 bottles of wine!!!

“A surprise find while in New Ulm.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

One a short weekend trip to New Ulm, MN. We came across Morgan Creek Winery. And what a nice surprise. The winery owner himself gave us our tasting, which was full of a great variety of wines. After tasting the deliciously fresh and delightful wines he then took us on a very informative tour. Educating us on not only the winery's history but also the grapes developed and now grown in MN. After the tour we snacked on a tasteful pizza and more wine, while sitting on the covered vine covered patio. We also met the co-owner/wife and she shared more in sites to life on a winery.

“Terrible experience, very cliquie and the wine sucked.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Husband and I have been getting into MN wines much more and we've heard about Morgan Creek for years. Heard they had great music and great outdoor seating and the pizza was good so we headed out there.
Aside from the fact that it wasn't the best drive, we arrived and were not treated very kindly. We ordered the pizza and it came pretty quickly but tasted awful. The bottom was pretty burnt but we had already had a light supper so it didn't matter much to us. We had their wine and it was absolutely horrid. The seating area was just a few chairs around a little firepit and the people that were there seemed like they came all the time and were pretty cliquie which we didn't appreciate as first time guests.
A lady came out and chatted with us which was probably the only positive thing of the afternoon. Not going back.
If you're planning to visit, talk to mroe than one person and make sure they aren't one of the 20 regulars.
