Alexis Bailly Vineyard
Open: April To December
In 1973, our family planted the first vineyard in Minnesota with a pioneering spirit that has brought us unlikely fame in the wine drinking world.Our tasting room opened in 1978 with the celebratory release of the first wines ever produced commercially of 100% Minnesota grown grapes.
Today, the second generation of our family continues this proud heritage of making wines in the world's most difficult climate - Where the grapes can suffer.
Good wine in an idyllic setting. The wine tasting room and shop are quite nice as is the staff. Play bocce or bean bag toss next to the vineyards. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch and have a bottle of wine for a relaxing afternoon.
Love this place. A group of friends Billy and Lindsey are members and take me here every time I am here. For sure a place that makes me feel like family. Games, art, good wine, and more importantly amazing people. Thanks to Nan and Sam for hosting such an amazing place. Thank you!
I don't personally drink wine, so I can't speak to that, but the others in my party said it's very good. If nothing else, the store and tasting area are in a very beautiful setting. So if you have some wine drinkers, bring them here for a tasting and some great hospitality in a beautiful country setting that's not a far drive from the city.
Great wines, great staff, and lots of room for kids to run through the vineyard and picnic. Thanks Ally for a fun tasting experience today!
Excellent looking vineyard with tons of room to relax and enjoy along with an excellent sampling atmosphere. We purchased some vineyard grapes on the way out and those were absolutely amazing. By far the best grapes I have ever tasted. However, during our sampling experience we tried all 10 of their wines available and all of them were sub par at best. Very disappointed in the wines as I don't understand how you turn such good grapes into such bad wine. The experience and grapes is what earned them the two stars, not the wine.
