open: Year Round
Opened in 2003, Falconer Vineyards and Winery is nestled in the bluff valleys which surround historic Red Wing, Minnesota. With our winery overlooking our 6.5 acre vineyard, we are one of Minnesota's most serene and picturesque wineries. Come to enjoy the wine and stay to take in the views from our deck and also enjoy one of our delicious wood-fired pizzas.
First date with a wonderful man. Not sure if it was the ambiance or the man I fell in love with first. Pizza, wine and service are wonderful... And the man... We are living happily ever after. And still enjoy the winery all the time.
Great little winery with a nice relaxing feel. The wines were really good and they let you take a self guided tour around the grounds. It's was a little confusing for us at first on where you go for the tasting. Tastings are in the front at the bar and food is in the back on the patio. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
Jackie was fabulous! Thank you for making our anniversary special with a big smile, quick wit and knowledge of wines!
The place is very small with limited parking. To enter the overflow parking you have to go down a steep hill and out a steep hill. Be sure to drive a bigger car or you'll end up damaging your car or getting it stuck. The wine tasting area was very small seating only 8 - 10 people at a time, with 2 ladies helping and it was really busy when when got there 1 hr 30 min after it opened. It was not organized at all on who was there first, you'd have to stand behind the tasters until they moved. After 40 mins without wine tasting we decided to go out to the deck and have lunch instead. It was not busy but they were poorly staffed for a Saturday. They only had 1 cashier, 1 lady taking orders and the owner bringing out the customers orders (mistakenly giving us 2 pizzas we did not order) and 1 lady making the pizzas. We waited 45 mins without ever ordering or getting anything to drink so we just left. The staff was nice and greeted us but that was all. We bought 2 bottles instead, Frontenac Rose´ and Chambourcin which are semi-sweet wines and it was very bland. There was not even a hint of sweetness to this. What a waste of time.. 40 mins drive, 40 mins waiting without wine tasting, 45 mins waiting to place an order, and 40 mins driving back home.
Great place for a casual date. The pizzas are very good, especially the grapes of wrath and you can order a little of wine to share. Whatever you don't finish can be re corked to transport home legally.
