You might be surprised to know that you can visit Minnesota wineries and taste Minnesota wines that are crafted from our own Minnesota grown fresh fruit.

Minnesota winery

Minnesota's early autumn frosts cut our growing season short which has led to the development of hardy grape varieties that can be harvested early, and that can also survive our Minnesota winters.

Many visitors to Minnesota are delighted to discover our thriving wine-growing industry. A favorite romantic date often includes a visit to a winery.

One reason that Minnesota vineyards are possible is that Minneapolis lies at the same 45 degrees north latitude as does the Bordeaux wine region in France.

Like the Bordeaux region, Minnesota summers are sunny and warm and we usually have plenty of rainfall.

There are Minnesota wineries in many parts of the state, including at least one that is as far north as Bemidji.

More of our vineyards are found in the southern part of the state among the rolling hills and bluffs.

Here are some of the most popular Minnesota wineries and the towns near them:



Minnesota Wineries Winehaven

WineHaven Winery - Chisago City, MN

From their website: "WineHaven is one of the most awarded wineries in the Upper Midwest, having won more than 200 awards for winemaking excellence during the past 10 years." 

Their German-themed Federweisser Festival in October and the Cheese and Chocolate Weekend in November are two special times to visit.



Minnesota Winery - Carlos Creek

Carlos Creek Winery - Alexandria, MN  

This Minnesota winery is a perfect place to sample wonderful grape and apple wines. Short tours of the winery are offered on the hour. 

Attend the Grape Stomp and Fall Festival in mid-September.

Also on the grounds - Arabian horses and an elm tree maze.  Hear live music most days during summer hours and on weekends year round. 




Minnesota Wineries - Forest Edge

Forestedge Winery: If you're traveling to the "North Country" of Minnesota to visit the Cass Lake, Park Rapids, Walker or Bemidji vacation area, or perhaps a visit to Itasca State Park, you will be very close to the Forestedge Winery.

Located on the edge of the Paul Bunyan State Forest, Forestedge Winery features dry to semi-dry International Award Winning Minnesota fruit wine. No grapes.

Visit their free wine tasting room and then tour the winery. Wine is available by the glass or bottle on site or by the bottle or case to take with you.
